Enrolments and Fees

Woden Community Service (WCS) has provided early education and care services for thousands of families in the ACT for over 50 years. We pride ourselves on providing high quality education and care services to the Canberra community.

All our enrolments and bookings are managed using My Family Lounge, an online booking management system. There is a Parent User Guide. Please be aware that it may take up to a week for your request to be processed if space is available at the time of your request.

WCS accepts booking requests throughout the year and processes the requests as availability arises.
