How to join Acorn


At Acorn Early Learning Centre we know it can be daunting to enrol your child in a new centre. So to keep things easy we have an enrolment procedure that is straight forward and been proven very effective in the past.

First, give us a call or fill out our contact form to book a visit to our centre so you can learn more about us and how we can benefit your family.

Once you have visited, we will invite you to take an enrolment form away with you to complete and return to us with all other necessary documents.

If you are lucky enough to secure an immediate place for your child then we will send you an enrolment pack.

We will then be in touch to arrange for you and your child to visit us and meet the team, this helps you and your child to become familiar with us and our environment.

We look forward to meeting with you!


Our Fees






We have worked with our local families to develop a fee schedule that reflects the needs of our Gendowie and St Heliers communities. We believe all children should have access to great childcare and that parents should have complete trust in the centre providing this. Our fee schedule has been devised to ensure we can continue to provide the best possible childcare and flexible sessions to our families because we take our responsibility as a provider of care and education very seriously.


Our fee schedule also has the following attributes:

  • 20 hours free ECE for children over 3 years old
  • Family discount of 10% for two or more children from the same family
  • WINZ subsidies available - see your eligibility here
