Fees

 

Our fees are structured and set to ensure that the provision of high quality child care remains viable. We aim to keep fees affordable for families.

Current fee rates are displayed on the notice board above the sign in/out folders in the foyer and are also available from reception.

Fees are charged on a full-day basis (eg, no half day bookings).

A bond is payable upon enrolment, prior to the commencement of care.

The centre charges an annual administration fee of $50.00 per family.

Fees will not be charged for times when the centre is closed (eg, public holidays and the Christmas break).

Fees are charged for booked hours of care, regardless of whether they are used in full and regardless of notification of absence.

 

Payment of Fees

Fees can be paid by direct bank deposit, cash, cheque or EFTPOS.

Permanent authorities for credit card deductions are available.

Fees are payable weekly (unless by prior arrangement).

 

Fee Assistance

Assistance with fees is available to parents in the form of Child Care Benefit and for “working” families the 50% Child Care Rebate.
