The Cradle Child Care is open to all children, regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, creed, religion, special need or ethnicity. Enrolment is based on the availability of spaces within the centre or desired program. Spaces are filled on availability corresponding to such vacancies. A waiting list is maintained from which vacancies are also filled. Contact us today if you are interested in enrolling your child at The Cradle.
The centre may terminate child care services for failure to pay fees, consistent late pick ups (without a phone call), failure to follow The Cradle policies, or inappropriate/threatening/abusive behavior that is harmful to the child, other children or staff.
We can typically care of something as simple as a sniffle, but we will keep an eye on the child for further symptoms. If we are in a position where your child’s illness will infect other children (ie- fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, chicken pox, etc) we will contact you to pick up the child.
We also have a working relationship with recommended hospitals and will proceed to these centres incase of life threatening medical conditions.
In addition to 24 hour surveillance and making sure a child only leaves with their designated parent(s) or guardian(s), we will not allow any unrecognised person to access the premises. Each parent is given a child identification card that they present when they pick up their child from The Cradle.
