For early childhood play,
We participate in the
Free Childcare Scheme at
Bright Sparks Child Care Centre
From April 2014, parents of children between 3 - 36months who attend at Bright Sparks Child Care Centre will not have to pay for the child care they receive if the parents are in work or study. Child care will be paid by the government! There are some minimal terms and conditions that regulate the agreements made between parents and childcare service providers and with the government's service regulators.
Parents who intend to send their children to Bright Sparks Childcare Centre are invited to come and visit us.
Procedure to apply for free childcare
Having registered with Bright Sparks, an application form will then be filled for free childcare. Parents will be informed whether their application has been accepted by the Education Department in a few days time .
An application for free childcare has to be accompanied by :
1. The mother's latest 3 payslips

3. If the mother has joint custody of the child with the father then the details of employment of the father are needed. A statement by the father's employer on an official letterhead saying where the father works, when the father started work and how many hours weekly the father works.
