Do you wish to enrol your child at Little Joeys? Below we step out in detail, the Enrolment Process.
Step 1: Parents/Guardians complete an Application for Enrolment form for each child, completing all sections as requested.
Step 2: Return the completed Application for Enrolment form to the main College office or the Little Joeys with a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate, Immunisation records and Health Care Card if applicable. Include any other necessary documents or reports and the non-refundable registration fee of $25 per child.
Step 3: Little Joeys will contact you by email regarding an interview time or notification of a placement on the waiting list.
If the child is put on a waiting list > When a position becomes available an invitation to an interview will be sent by email.
If the child is to be offered a place > The Parent and child attend an interview at the centre with the Director where more detailed information may be required regarding health needs and special concerns.
Step 4: When all enrolment information has been received an offer of placement will be given, specifying an orientation day and a starting date. Parents will also be required to complete a direct debit payment form.
Step 5: Parents need to sign and return the accepted offer with the enrolment fee of $150.
Step 6: The child along with parent/guardian attend the designated orientation day where children are given a starter pack, which includes a Joeys t-shirt, a set of sheets, library folder, lunch box, wet clothes bag, water bottle and parent information book. The children also receive a folder (which stays at the centre) and a hat at a later date once their name has been embroidered.
Step 7: If children are enrolled for the start of the year, an invitation to a further orientation day in December will be sent out by email.
Step 8: We then welcome children on their first day. Parents are encouraged to stay until the child settles and/or mat time begins. Parents/Guardians are requested to speak with the teacher at the end of each day, especially for the first few weeks after starting.
Please note that until all sections of the application are received, we cannot proceed with the Application for Enrolment. Completing an Application for Enrolment in Little Joeys does not offer automatic entry into Coolum Beach Christian College. A separate Application for Enrolment for Prep is required.
