Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR)

Leapkids is an approved and registered Australian child care provider. Eligible parents may utilise the Federal Government’s Child Care Benefit and/or Child Care Rebate schemes for our services.  

In order for us to apply CCB and/or CCR to your account, you MUST provide us with both your child's CRN Number and the corresponding parent's CRN Number. If you are not registered for CCB/CCR, please contact the Family Assistance Office on 13 61 50

At Leapkids, your child’s safety and well-being is very important to us.  To ensure that we provide the best possible care for your child, we require the following:

  • A copy of your child’s Immunisation Record MUST be provided with each enrolment.
  • If your child suffers from anaphylaxis, asthma, allergies or any medically diagnosed condition, you MUST provide a current medical management plan, anaphylaxis management plan or risk minimization plan signed by your doctor with a recent colour photo of your child.  
  • Written information regarding any cultural, religious, dietary requirements or additional needs.

Nut Free Program

Leapkids is a 'Nut Free' service. Please ensure your child doesnot bring food that contains nuts to the program.

What should my child bring?

Please ensure your child brings morning tea, packed lunch and a refillable water bottle. We provide a light afternoon snack every day.  Please ensure your child does not bring food that requires heating or refrigerating.

Clothing and Footwear

Please ensure your child is dressed in comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes. Thongs and sandals are strictly not allowed.

At Leapkids, we encourage positive behavior at all times. Our staff adopt the ‘Key Components of Guiding Children’ which include the following:

  • Understanding that all behaviour has meaning;
  • Working with the child, not against them;
  • Knowing each child in your care;
  • Acknowledging each child’s individuality;
  • Building a relationship based on mutual respect;
  • Planning to meet the needs of each child;
  • Creating a supportive environment;
  • Using a range of behaviour guidance tools; and
  • Be willing to teach and guide children in a supportive way.

Inappropriate or dangerous behavior

Should a child’s behavior impact on the safety and well-being of others, the parent, guardian or care giver will be contacted to discuss the behavior and work towards implementing positive strategies to improve the behavior, and/or consider alternative arrangements.

SunSmart

Leapkids Sun Smart policy will be enforced from September through to April. Please ensure our child brings a hat and sun screen for our programs operating during this period. Remember, No Hat, No Outdoor Play!

Excursions

We will provide specific information to families about all planned excursions prior to the start of the program.

At Leapkids, we support all children to participate in our holiday programs.  In order to provide quality and responsive care that meets the needs of a child with additional needs, we will require at least 4 weeks’ notice prior to the start of the program to allow for funding and staffing.  

We treat each case individually and will make decisions based on the needs of the child, and availability of appropriately qualified staff and resources. 

Enrolling or booking your child into our holiday program is quick and easy via our Parent Portal. Once you have submitted your enrolment/booking, we will contact you within 3-5 working days to confirm.
