If you are an eligible AMEP (Adult Migrant English Program) client with children under school age, you can access free* childcare while you are in class. KU Children’s Services, a Navitas English AMEP partner provides all childcare placements at no cost to AMEP clients. This service will help you to study knowing that your children are safe and well looked after.
Regular childcare attendance provides significant benefits to your children’s successful settlement and early learning. They will be in a supportive learning environment where they can develop a wide range of skills as well as improve their English language. They will be able to mix with other children from a wide variety of backgrounds and become familiar with Australian culture. All of this will prepare them well for future schooling.
As a parent you will also gain a good understanding about the childcare and school systems in Australia and get advice and assistance with your children’s education, as well as a chance to meet other parents.
The KU Team will talk with you and will offer you a suitable childcare place so that you can study in the AMEP (Adult Migrant English Program) classes. Please note that childcare places are in high demand and some childcare centres have long waiting lists. At times childcare may not be available immediately as places are limited.
You are entitled to use AMEP funded childcare only during your class hours and only on the days of your classes. If you are absent from your class, you cannot use the childcare centre. Please inform the KU Team if your childcare needs are going to change and you no longer need AMEP funded childcare.
*Eligibility criteria apply. The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
