Child Care

Rye Beach Kidz

Rye Beach Kidz is a type 2 licensed occasional childcare service located within the Rye Community House.  The service is licensed for a maximum of 14 children. The size allows for children to develop a close connection with the educators and for the development of individual learning experiences for our children.

  • Rye Beach Kidz regards children as unique individuals with their own interests, strengths and abilities which should be respected and valued by all.
  • We aim to foster a strong sense of identity and wellbeing, a feeling of connection to their community and the confidence to achieve the best they can.
  • We are committed to providing children with a stimulating environment in which they are offered the opportunity to work, explore, learn and discover at their own pace.

The location, next to the Rye Pre School and near the local Rye primary school allows for a smooth transition between the centre, pre school and the school in an environment where children feel comfortable and secure.
We operate between 9.00 and 2.00 pm with a maximum of 3 days per week per child.

‘No jab, no play’ policy
In keeping with the Federal and State Governments’ ‘NO jab, no play’ policies, children MUST have acceptable proof of immunisation prior to enrolment in the form of an Immunisation History Statement from Medicare, we are not legally able to accept any other form of proof of immunisation.

COVID and Childcare
With the current childcare restrictions we can only accept children where at least one parent has a work permit as an essential worker, if a child is vulnerable or for single parents. In Phase B, around October 26th we can continue to accept those children and children of parents who are fully vaccinated. We will need to sight the vaccination certificates. In Phase C (around Nov 5th) we will resume normal operations so there will be no restrictions on who can attend.
