Fees

 As a not-for-profit centre, all fees paid by families go directly to our staffing obligations and associated costs.

The Centre fees are set by the Management Committee each financial year, with a view to forecasting the obligations and associated costs for the Centre.

Fees are charged based on days, not on the actual number of hours a child attends. Fees include morning and afternoon tea as well as a nutritious hot lunch, which all meet the recommended dietary requirements. Also included is sunscreen.

The current fees, effective from 2nd August 2021 are:

BABY ROOM  -  $146.00 per day

TODDLER ROOM  -  $144.00 per day

PRESCHOOL ROOM  -  $141.00 per day

Your family may be eligible to receive the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) (income tested). All CCS reductions will be paid to the centre and automatically allocated to your fees account. Each week you will then pay the difference between your full fees and any CCS you receive. The Government always pays CCS one (1) week in arrears. You will need to apply to Centrelink to access this benefit.

Security Deposit

A two week, full fee, Security Deposit is payable in advance upon accepting our offer of enrolment for your child. If you increase or decrease your child's attendance days or there is a fee increase, the Security Deposit needs to be adjusted accordingly. This deposit is fully refunded at the end of your child's time with us.
