Child Care Information

Childcare Information Officer

Our Child Care Information Officer can give you advice on child care options including nearby childcares centres, occasional care options, school holiday programs and on-campus parent facilities. General information on the types of child care available in Australia is available at

The Child Care Information Office manages the USYD Student Parents and Carers Network. This network group can help you to develop friendships, share experiences and advice with other students who have children in their care. Join the Facebook group to share tips, experiences and learn about events for you and your family.

If you’re coming to the University from abroad and are bringing your family with you, before you leave home there are things you should plan and arrangements you need to make. Our guide to bringing your family to Australia (pdf, 498KB) provides information about childcare and schooling in Australia, which may differ from your home country.

Our Child Care Information Officer is available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm and located on Level 5, Jane Foss Russell Building (G02). Contact or call on +61 2 8627 2004 for enquiries and appointments.
