A range of times are available to book for school tours for enrolments for 2021 (see times on the ‘Book Tour’ function).
Given the current limitations to having adults on-premises, Virtual Tours are replacing On-Site Tours for the remainder of Term 2, with On-Site Tours hopefully able to resume in Term 3. These Virtual Tours will provide new families with an overview of our school philosophy, programs and initiatives as well as the chance to ask questions of the Principal.
Virtual and On-Site Tours can be booked by using the ‘Book a Tour’ function on this page (for virtual tours, a WebEx link will be sent to your nominated email address). Tours take approximately 1 hour and children are welcome to attend.
Should you wish to enquire about enrolment for this year or the times provided do not suit, please contact the school directly.

Child Care Benefit System
The Child Care Management System (CCMS) is a national child care system that will bring child care services online. Malvern Valley Primary School OSHC uses the CCMS registered software used to record child, enrolment and attendance information. This is required to be reported to the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) via the internet to allow calculation and payment of Child Care Benefit (CCB) fee reductions on behalf of children in our Service. Parents/guardians who register with the Family Assistance Office (FAO) for online services will be able to access an online statement via the View child care details of the online services section of the Centrelink Human Services website www.humanservices.gov.au. This statement will include details of CCB payments and absences.
Parents can register for the online service by calling the FAO on 13 61 50 or online at www.familyassist.gov.au. We have two CRN numbers for Before School Care (BSC) and After School Care (ASC). You may need these once you log into your account.
