Frequently Ask Questions

What to ask, when choosing quality childcare.

  • What makes quality childcare?
  • Which centre is right for my child?
  • What centre is right for you?

When considering childcare for the first time it can be hard to know what you should look for and what questions to ask. So many newer parents have said, “I don’t know what I don’t know!”.

Do you have spaces now, or must I put my name on a waiting list?

Brisbane City Child Care actively manages their waiting list. We work hard to make space to suit our families’ needs.

How well has safety been fully considered?

Brisbane City Child Care has an industry leading tried and tested evacuation and gets ALL children completely outside in under 2 minutes! We practice this evacuation regularly. Those children who are not yet walking are cared for on the ground floor to ensure ease of evacuation via special evacuation cots.

What’s the daily routine for my child’s age-group?

When touring our centre you can ask us about how the rooms are set up and the current transition points between rooms.

Is it a fixed daily plan or can it be individualised to my child’s preferences/priorities/values/?

Brisbane City Child Care has 4 nurseries each with separate sleep rooms so your baby can follow the routine you set. We use our multiple rooms to group children together where individualised routines and child-led play complement each other.

What are the age groupings in rooms? What determines when my child moves from one room to another?

Some centres group children together by age, others by developmental stage. Some have open plan spaces where a larger range of ages are all together.
