Enrolment and Waiting List

Are you interested in enrolling your child at the Professor Lynn Corcoran Early Learning Centre: FROEBEL Parkville? Please join our Waiting List by clicking on the Waiting List button on this webpage.

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 registered, you will be receiving relevant updates (such as invitations to our Open Haus) from the Centre Director. A Waiting List administration fee of $40.00 (or $25.00 for any additional child) applies and can be paid by credit card at the end of the registration process.

Our Centre Director offers regular centre tours on weekdays and our FROEBEL Open Haus is held several times per year on a Saturday morning. Please contact us if you would like to book a tour and make sure you follow us on Facebook where we will advertise our Open Haus dates.

Please note: Our service is a workplace Early Learning Centre, with priority of access for eligible families (such as employees of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute and Melbourne Health). Excess capacity is made available to families within the wider community. Please refer to the Priority of Access Policy for further details.

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

The Professor Lynn Corcoran Early Learning Centre: FROEBEL Parkville is a service approved by the Victorian Department of Education and Training, 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.
