If you haven’t yet visited our child care facility, we invite you to take a tour of our lovely Centre and meet with our Educators to discuss your child’s individual needs. If you’d like to go ahead and enrol your child, please call us on 9836 7942 to find out about our current availability, then download the Balwyn Community Centre Childcare Handbook 2020.

After speaking with reception, the next step is to download a Childcare Enrolment Form 2022 and either email, post or drop it into our office. We must receive this form before your child begins childcare.

Please note that bookings are essential for all child care sessions. Child care is available for children aged from 6 weeks up to school-age for a maximum of 15 hours per week. Child care is offered 40 weeks per year, following school terms. Bookings are made on a term basis, although we offer casual spots if a place is available.
