Welcoming news

Welcome to 2018 and to our new families.

Smart Start Early Learning Centre is a purpose-built, multicultural long day care centre, caring for children from six weeks of age.

The Service was rated as “Exceeding” in a 2017 Assessment and Rating process. You can view the breakdown of this rating in the different quality areas in the reception area or on the website.

We operate 52 weeks of the year, except for public holidays. We know that our parents are very busy people, so we offer an all-inclusive service with home-cooked meals, sheets for rest time, hats, nappies and all consumables e.g. sunscreen, wipes and tissues. We also offer limited before and after school care. Our parents provide changes of clothing, a water bottle and an easily identifiable pillow case which is used by your child as their sheet bag. We ask that parents label all items. Your child’s name on the pillow case can be written in laundry marker – we can do this for you!

Our fees are comparable with other services, as most families are eligible for government benefits or rebates on their fees. Please see the mychild website for details.

Our Facebook information page has been very popular and helpful for families, so please find us on Facebook! You can link to our Facebook page via the website.

If you need care for your child, please come in and see us or give us a ring on 3814 1188. Peta is our director and she is only too happy to help you, as are any of our team, so please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can also register your interest on our “Enrol Now” page or send us an email at

The Smart Start Team looks forward to hearing from you and meeting you. Thank you for reading “Welcoming News”.
