Enrolment & Waiting List
Are you interested in enrolling your child at FROEBEL St Leonards? Please join our Waiting List by clicking on the link at the bottom of 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.
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.
Open Haus at FROEBEL St Leonards
In 2020, we will open our doors for all interested families on the following Saturday mornings:
- Saturday, 1st of February 2020, 10am to 11am

- Saturday, 29th of August 2020, 10am to 11am

Please join one of our Open Haus events if you would like to see our centre and learn more about our educational program! Following an introduction from the Centre Director you can freely move around our centre and meet a number of our educators. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend. We look forward to meeting you!
If you are unable to make it on any of the above dates please contact us to arrange an individual centre tour on a weekday.
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 period 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.
