Massey Child Care Centres accept both full-time and part-time enrolments. Full-time is 6 or more hours a day, for 5 days a week.
There is a minimum booking time of 6 hours a day and a minimum enrolment of 24 hours per week.
When booking a long day (over six hours), availability at both the start and end of the day is dependent on staff to child ratios, and the number of spaces available at those times. We cannot guarantee a full nine hour day is available at the time of booking as we are committed to ensuring that children are offered high quality care and education at all times.
