Registration Explained

As a licensed Child Care provider, we need all parents to complete the mandatory registration for a child to attend our care. This registration is a legal requirement for us to accept children into our care and gives us all the necessary information so we can provide the best care for each child.

Once the mandatory registration is completed you will be sent an account log in to access our booking Parent Portal. You will be asked to choose an account level; choose Silver or Gold on the Parent Portal, or call Customer Care on 1300 105 343 to downgrade to Blue. This determines the Permanent Fee that you have access to if booking multiple bookings: Blue, Silver, or Gold. The differences are listed below.

All Camp Australia parents can also make casual bookings when not needing an ongoing Permanent Schedule.

For your child to attend our care, you must agree to our terms and conditions. Please read them below.
