Fees

Fees

We endeavour to set fees at an affordable rate after considering the ongoing operational needs of the service. Our fees include the provision of nappies, wipes, formula, bottles, meals and snacks, sun cream, bedding, and programmed activities.

Note: In some circumstances, parents may be asked to provide meals and formula for bottles to meet their child’s specific dietary requirements (this does not include gluten free, dairy free and/or nut free dietary requirements).

As per the service’s fee payment policy, parents are to ensure that fees are paid one week in advance of the care provision date. Failure to follow this policy by clients may result in the cancellation of your child’s enrolment as at the date your fees become in arrears.

In accordance with the service’s cancellation of enrolment policy, parents must provide a minimum of two weeks written notice of the cancellation of enrolment or reduction of enrolment days. Failure to provide such will result in the parents being invoiced full fees (without government subsidies applied).

Note: Government subsidies are not allocated to family accounts if a child does not attend the service on their final day of enrolment. This is not something we have any control over, and as such advise families to observe this legislative directive to avoid being charged full fees for their child’s final day of enrolment.

Fees Structure Base fees prior to any government subsidies and/or rebates
5 days $430.00
Full Day $94.00
Half Day $56.0
Before School $24.00
After School $30.00
