Parent Information

Below is some important parent information. Our Parent Information documentation in our Welcome Pack contains more details. Please contact us for your copy and book a visit.


As part of our all-inclusive service, we provide nutritional home cooked meals prepared by our in-house cook. Our aim is to encourage healthy eating habits. Fantails Country was awarded their Gold Healthy Heart Award and Fantails Silverdale is working towards theirs.


Nappies is provided and included in the weekly fees at Fantails Country.

At Fantails Silverdale we have an opt-in option to provide your child's nappies for $2 per day. If you choose to provide your own nappies, please put these in your child's bag and top them up each day. If we run out of your nappies, we will use a Fantails nappy at $1 for each nappy used.

School Readiness Program

Our Fantail Flyers school readiness program has been created by our experienced and qualified team, in collaboration with the new entrant teachers of our local schools.

Special attention is given to not just word recognition, numeracy and vocabulary but also concentration, working in a group and routines. As part of the program Fantails will provide lunchboxes and drink bottles to help with this change of routine as children enter school.

Our aim is to build confidence so children can move comfortably into "big school".

Teacher to Child Ratios

At Fantails we maintain outstanding teacher to child ratios. The Early Childhood Regulations state minimum ratio requirements for Under 2's is 1:5 and Over 2's being 1:10. We maintain a minumum ratios of 1:4 for Under2's and 1:8 for Over 2's.

Qualified Teachers

We recognise the importance of providing quality early childhood education by a skilled and knowledgeable workforce and maintain at least 80% qualified teaching team and provide professional development for all our teachers.


We recommend that all parents/guardians and children visit Fantails before making a decision. Please complete the enrolment request form here. We will contact you and make an appointment to show you around and explain all that is going on.
