Kindergartens

Kindergartens will return to face-to-face care from Monday, 13 July.

The City of Casey is making changes to support our kindergarten families during this challenging time. The health and safety of your child, family and our educators are our top priority.

Please view our FAQs for more information or view a list of Council-managed kindergartens
 

Family Day Care

The City of Casey has made changes to support its Family Day Care service.

Families who use this service need to comply with new rules to make sure that your child(ren), the other children in the group and your educator stay healthy. 

If your child is unwell, please keep them at home and let your educator know. If you have returned to Australia from overseas you must self-isolate for 14 days, and only if the self-isolation period is observed and your child is in full-health, may they attend their Family Day Care sessions. 

Your FDC Educator will need to restrict visitors, including Occupational Therapists, unless essential. Please check with your educator for more information.

School aged children can attend Family Day Care if they are not attending school. Check with your FDC Educator if they have capacity for your child. Kinder children who are not attending their normal kinder can also attend Family Day Care and they will still qualify for Child Care Subsidy. 

For further information on FDC, you can contact your usual educator, or the City of Casey via our call centre.

Needle exchange program

The Needle Exchange Program has been modified, due to the temporary closure of our face-to-face Customer Service Centres.

The program will only be a sharps container provision service until further notice.

If you have a full container, we ask that you hold on to these until the program returns to normal operations. If you need a new container, please contact us and we will coordinate a time for an Environmental Health officer to drop this to your home.
