Enrolment Process


  1. To join the waitlist, please complete the online form located at bambinielc.com.au/enquiries/waiting-list-application.
  2. When a position becomes available in the correct age group of your child, you are contacted using the information provided on your waitlist application. Please get back to us promptly as we are unable to hold the position.
  3. Once we have discussed your requirements for childcare, families are emailed an official offer of place. An enrolment booklet, direct debit form and policy and procedures document are also emailed at this time.
  4. To confirm your child’s place, we ask families to pay a non-refundable enrolment administration fee of $180, and a bond. The bond is calculated by the number of days your child attends x 4 weeks. The bond is transferred to your bond account, and is offset against the last months fees, when you give us four weeks notice in writing that your child is leaving Bambini.
  5. When the enrolment fee and bond is received, your booking is confirmed.
  6. Prior to your child’s first day, we ask you to be in touch with your Centre Coordinator to organise an orientation session.  At this time you will receive a gorgeous Bambini welcome pack.

Please take note

  • There is one central waiting list for both of our Brighton centres and a separate waiting list for East Brighton, Hampton Newtown and Parkville.
  • The length of the waiting list varies from centre to centre, and some age groups are more popular than others. Families are offered places according to the date their application form was received.
  • For details on the priority of allocating places, please refer to: http://education.gov.au/priority-allocating-places
  • The fee to join the waiting list is $50 per family and additional children can be added at any time. This fee is non-refundable.
  • At Bambini we have a minimum two day enrolment requirement per child.  Attending Bambini for two days or more per week helps your child to settle in quickly, bond with their educators, make friends and fully participate in our programs.
