FUNDED KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM Guthrie Street Child Care Centre


Research shows that play-based learning is a powerful way to support children’s development. These benefits last into the school years and beyond. Evidence also shows that two years are better than one when it comes to early learning.

Did you know that 90 per cent of a child’s brain develops by the time they turn five?

Our quality kindergarten program will have more impact on children who start at age three rather than four. The benefits are even greater for children in vulnerable circumstances.

Guthrie Street Child Care Centre


There is a charge for sick days. Usually, you can get up to 42 allowable absence days per child each financial year. For the 2022-23 financial year, you can get 10 extra allowable absences bringing the total number of absence days to 52.

You can only use absence days for days your child would normally attend care and get CCS. This includes public holidays.

You can use absence days for any reason, including if the child is on a holiday. You don’t need to provide evidence for any absences you use under the allowable absence limit.

Guthrie Street Child Care Centre


Guthrie Street Child Care Centre is closed on all federal, state, and local holidays; however, you will still be responsible for payment if some of your regularly scheduled classes take place on a holiday. CCS will typically be paid out for public holidays, but this may not be the case if your allotted 42 absence days have already been used up.
