We offer in home education and care services in regional, remote and metro areas and are currently operating in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and the ACT. We have plans to begin operating in other locations by 2020.
What are your hours of operation?
We offer in home education and care services from Monday to Friday between 7am and 7pm.
Do I have to book in for full days?
No, we offer half day, full day, and extended day bookings. See our Fees for the varying prices according to how many hours you book.
What is the minimum commitment?
The minimum session is three hours once a week, for a 12 week period. The minimum period does not apply to families where at least one parent or guardian works non-standard or variable hours.
Can I book casual sessions?
Yes you can. We offer Emergency Childcare, which you can use as a taster for our real program. You can book directly on our website.
Can I book fortnightly sessions?
We require a minimum of 1 booking per week, unless at least one parent or guardian works non-standard or variable hours, in which case we can work with their roster.
Can I be at home while the Educator is around?
Yes of course, it is your home and our Educators are happy to take care of all of your child’s education and care needs even if you are at home.
Is there any way to make it more cost effective?
If you have only one or two children, you can participate in a Family Co-op to bring down your cost. We can pair you with another family or you can find another family to join with yourself.
Do we get the same Educator every time?
Yes. We believe the Educator’s relationship with your child is crucial to your child’s success. We allocate the same Educator to each family for the 12 week period and if your hours and days do not change after that you will generally hold onto that Educator.
Can we change Educators?
If for any reason you want to change Educators, we have various feedback opportunities to discuss how we can meet your needs and find the best Educator to meet your family’s needs.
How do you cater for children of different ages?
Our curriculum is tailored to the needs of each child. This means that our Educators spend time each week preparing a program according to each child’s stage of learning and development so that no child within the program misses out on having their needs met. See our section on Varying Ages for more information.
Can I access the Child Care Subsidy by using Leor?
Unfortunately Leor is not a service covered by the Child Care Subsidy, however we offer competitive fees to allow families to access Leor’s high quality education and care.
Is Leor an NDIS Provider?
Unfortunately Leor is not an NDIS Provider. However, our early childhood educators have experience across a wide range of areas and are able to support children who may have special needs.
Is there a waitlist?
We occasionally have a waitlist, so please contact us to find out if we have availability for the day and time you are after. We do not charge a fee to families who wish to make an application, so we recommend applying now to access our earliest availability.
Do you do drop off and pick up?
Our Educators can transport children to and from other educational activities using your car if your insurance covers the Educators use of your vehicle.
Do children need to be immunised?
Children who access our service do not need to be immunised if they are not accessing the Child Care Subsidy. This means non-immunised children can access early learning and care in their own home, or join with another family of children who are not immunised as part of a Family Co-op. All of our Educators are regularly immunised.
