Waitlisting your child on Kidsoft

Learn how to add your child to the waitlist on our enrolments platform, Kidsoft.

What is Kidsoft?

Kidsoft is the platform where we manage enrolments for our childcare and kindergarten services. It makes it simple and easy to record enrolments and serves as a record of information for you and your child.

Our enrolment process

Local councils manage the waitlists for many of our kindergartens and childcare centres.

However, to register for a place at some of our centres, you will need to waitlist your child directly with ECMS via Kidsoft. Below is a tutorial that outlines what you need to do. If you have any questions, please fill out this form, and a member of our enrolments team will contact you.
