Enrolment and Waiting List

Are you interested in enrolling your child with Froebel Alexandria? Please join our Waiting List by clicking on the Waiting List button on this webpage. For a limited time only, joining our waiting list is free!

You can register your interest even if your child is not yet born (please enter TBA in the child's name section and the expected date of birth). Once you are on our Waiting List our Centre Director will keep you in the loop on upcoming vacancies and events such as the Froebel Open Haus. 

Our Centre Director offers regular centre tours on weekdays and our Froebel Open Haus is held 2-3 times per year on a Saturday morning to give all interested families the opportunity to see our centre and learn about our educational program. Please contact us for further information and dates.

It is our priority to keep the waiting list and enrolment process fair for all our families. Froebel applies the following Priority of Access Guidelines when allocating placements:


  • Priority 1: a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect
  • Priority 2: any other child.

Within Priority 2, priority is given to

  • a child of a permanent part-time or full-time employee of Froebel Australia Limited (Priority 2A), 
  • a child of a family who is currently enrolled at Froebel (Priority 2B),
  • a child who was previously enrolled at Froebel for no less than three consecutive months or currently attends another Froebel centre in Australia (Priority 2C).

Please note that there may be wait times for a placement which will depend on availability in your child's age group, our Priority of Access Guidelines, your preferred start date and booking pattern. Please contact our Centre Director for more details. 

Orientation Period

We believe it is important that your child and our educators are able to build a relationship prior to the enrolment start. This is why we offer you and your child an Orientation period at our Centre which usually take place in the two weeks prior to the first day of enrolment. The Orientation is designed to help your child settle in to the play and learning environments and to provide sufficient time for you, your child and our educators to get to know each other and to discuss your child's routines, individual requirements, likes and dislikes. Please contact our Centre Director to learn more about our Orientation process.  

Child Care Subsidy

Froebel Alexandria is a service approved by the NSW Department of Education and Communities, and is also approved for Child Care Subsidy. Families can find further information on how to apply for family assistance with the cost of childcare on the website of the Department of Human Services.
