General questions

Does my child have to take a nap?

We aim to make rest time a relaxed, pleasant time for all children.  We provide stretcher beds for children and play soft music in the background. Your child may wish to bring a security item to have at rest time. Please feel free to discuss your child’s rest or sleep needs with Educators.

How much do your programs cost?

0 – 35 months full day session costs $105

36 months – Preschool age full day session costs $95

How can I enroll at your kindergarten?

You can join our waitlist at the YMCA NT website.

Prior to commencing at our service, you will be required to complete all enrolment documentation and pay administration fee $70.00 and one week’s care fees in advance.

What should I pack in my child’s bag?

For independence, we work towards all children being able to recognise and open their own bag. Let them be involved in selecting the bag and taking ownership of it. Please ensure it is large enough to hold all their belongings and is clearly labelled.

Morning tea/Afternoon tea can be sent in a small container, clearly labelled with their name. Also include one drink bottle – again with their name on it.

We try to encourage a healthy lunch at the Service so only provide sandwiches with nutritious fillings

Here is a list of items we recommend you pack:

  • 2 sets of spare clothes
  • A bucket hat
  • A wet bag
  • Lunch box
  • Nappies (6 per day)
  • Underwear (4 sets)
