If you're a parent and need child care assistance while you study, we may be able to help.
As a TAFE Illawarra student, you have access to our Children's Centres where you will find qualified educators who can look after your child while you study.
There are Children's Centres located at Goulburn, Shellharbour and Wollongong Campuses and they provide positive learning environments for young children, fostering self-esteem and self-worh.
Staff at our Children's Centres develop appropriate educational programs for all children based on the National Early Years Learning Framework. Within these programs your child will be supported and challenged and their achievements are highly valued.
Child care fees
Fees are determined by how many hours your child attends the Chidren's Centre. You may be eligible for fee assistance through Centrelink.
