We answer your commonly asked questions. If you cannot find an answer below, please contact us and we’ll be happy to arrange a tour to answer your questions.

What if my child has a food allergy?

As a large number of children have food allergies or intolerances, we leave it up to you to provide the best foods for your child's specific needs in a packed lunch. 

As nut allergies are quite common in children, we like most childcare centres are nut-free.  Consequently we request parents exclude all nuts and nut based foods from their child's lunch box.

Please let us know if your child is allergic or intolerant of any food, so that we can accommodate this in baking, cooking and morning and afternoon teas. 

Do you have a healthy-food policy?

Yes, we encourage families to send their children along with water or plain milk (not flavoured milk), along with a selection of fruit and sandwiches.  Our healthy-food policy and information booklet is available to you when you visit.

Are you environmentally friendly daycare?

Yes, we strongly encourage the use of reusable containers that will be sent home each day and work to reduce our waste impact through the Resource Wise program where we recycle, reuse, compost, grow a garden and worm farm.

Are morning and afternoon tea provided?

Yes, we provide healthy food options of fruits, vegetables and crackers.

What do I need to provide my child with each day?

You will need to send your children along with the following:

  • Lunch box and a water bottle
  • Formula and bottles (for those still being bottle fed)
  • Nappies, wipes and creams
  • A wet bag, change of clothes and a hat
What is the minimum booking I can make for my child?

We require a minimum of three hours, twice a week (a total of six hours). This is to ensure your child settles in well and develops a sense of belonging. We want to make sure your child is comfortable at St Peters Childcare.
