Cancellations

Cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to booked time (unless the allotted time can be re-sold to another patron) will incur a cancellation fee equivalent to the amount that you would have paid. The cancellation payment should be made on or before the next visit and receipt given to child care staff. Please notify the centre as soon as possible if a booking is not required, as this may change staffing and set up arrangements.

Illness Policy

Little Pelicans ask that children only attend when they are well. Parents should contact the child care centre as soon as practical if their child develops an infectious disease or contagious condition (e.g. conjunctivitis, head lice, chicken pox). If unsure, please contact the centre regardless.

Should a child become ill while attending the service, the parents will be contacted as soon as practical. If parents/guardians are not able to be contacted within reasonable time, arrangements for the child’s collection will be made using emergency contacts as per their enrolment form.
