Stage 4 Restrictions and Access to Childcare

5th August to 25th September

As Melbourne moves into Stage 4 Restrictions, City Kids is still open and caring for vulnerable children and children of permitted workers.

From Thursday 6 August, only the children of permitted workers and vulnerable chilren will be able to access childcare and kinder. For full details on these Government guidelines please click on the link below. Permitted Worker Permits and Access to Childcare Permits can also be found on this website.

What about those families who cannot access care during the Stage 4 Restrictions?

For those families who are not eligible to access care during this time, City Kids will waive the parent gap fee whilst holding each childcare spot. Once restrictions are eased, all families will be able to start care again.

What about kindergarten children?

Our kinder teacher is providing home learning for all children enrolled in our funded kinder program, however those children of permitted workers can still access care.

Can new families enrol during this time?

Yes, we are still taking new enrolments during this time. Children of permitted workers will be able to start during the Stage 4 Restrictions. All other families will have an enrolment start date subject to the easing of Restrictions in line with Government guidelines.
