Totom House |
Multicultural Early Childhood Centre



Welcome to Totom House

Totom House early childhood centre provides quality care for children ranging in age from 6 weeks to school age. Totom House is a community based not for profit centre. It is managed by the centre co-directors and a committee made up primarily of parents.
Totom House Multicultural Early Childhood Centre aspires to be an outstanding learning community and environment, which values professional excellence, diversity and exceptional relationships.
At Totom House we actively promote Australia’s multicultural society by sharing with the children aspects of the diverse cultures and backgrounds of the various ethnic groups. We encourage parents and friends of the children from different backgrounds to bring their experiences, songs, stories and games into the centre so these can be shared with the children. We are accredited with the National Childcare Accreditation Council Inc.
We are currently located on the corner of Maribyrnong Cres and Georgina Cres, Kaleen ACT 2617

On our way

By now all the children should have transitioned to their new rooms and you should be dropping them off there at the beginning of the day.
Sign in sheets have now been updated to reflect these changes, so please make sure you sign the sheets on drop off and pick up and even if your child is away.

Remember if you have any questions or concerns please discuss these with your room leader or any of the room staff. There are no silly questions and all the staff are here to help and make your child’s transition and days at Totom House as smooth as possible

Please make sure the office has the latest copy of your child’s immunisation record.
Don’t forget your child must be fully immunised to receive any government child care benefits or rebate.

The Department of Human Services released two smartphone applications last year to assist families with claiming Medicare and family assistance.

All you need to do is have a mygov account and download the app. You can claim Medicare payments online by just taking a photo of your receipt and uploading it through the app. I’ve been using it for over a year and it is fantastic at it saves having to go into a Medicare office and wait in line forever!

I’ve uploaded more information from the Department website on our page under Information for Parents or by clicking here
