How It Works
We know that each family is unique and that traditional forms of childcare are often unable to cater for the needs and wishes of the diverse families in our community. We also understand the added stress that pick up and drop off routines can add to the relentless pressure of modern family life. For this reason, we have developed this innovative model of childcare that not only alleviates the pressure of the drop off/pick up routine, but also provides a focused, high quality, curriculum-based program to ensure that children are able to access the highest quality of care and education, in the comfort of their own homes.
All Leor Educators bring high standards of qualifications and/or experience, and must also complete a rigorous screening process, in order to become part of the Leor team. Leor applies strict governance and quality standards, to ensure that our Educators are delivering programs that meet both the child’s and the family’s needs.
Our program is delivered on the basis of half-day, full-day, or extended day bookings across regional, remote and metro areas. See our Flexible Options section for more information. The Leor program does not fall under services covered by the Child Care Subsidy, however we offer competitive fees to make our high quality service accessible to all families.
