Childcare centres can't be registered unless they meet minimum standards and we carry out full audits to make sure they are met. They're registered for one year, and must apply to be re-registered after that time.
All registered childcare centres and their details are listed below:
Registered day nurseries
Day nurseries are for children from babies to school entry age and provide full day, all year round care and learning.
Pre-schools are for children aged two to school entry age who must be toilet trained. They provide care and learning and are for a maximum period of five hours per session.
Registered activity clubs
Activity clubs are for children from school age entry to 12 years during the school holidays. A particular activity or sport is offered in addition to care.
Registered play care
Playcare is for children from school age entry to 12 years and is the provision of care before school, after school and during the school holidays and is available all year round.
Registered wrap around care
Wrap around care is for children from three years of age who are attending nursery class or in the first years of full time education.
