Payment of fees
All fees are payable by the close of business each week.

A Bond is payable on enrolment, $200 per child. This is fully refundable after your child leaves the Centre and all fees have been paid

Holiday Reduction Fee
Half fees are available for four weeks per year for families who withdraw their children for holidays. Two weeks written notice must be given. “Change of Details” forms are available from the office.

Sickness Reduction Fee
When a child is absent due to sickness, regular fees apply for the first week and thereafter a 50% fee reduction will apply for a period determined by the Director. Medical Certificates must be provided.

Absent days
Families are only entitled to 42 days per financial year to claim CCS. Once absent days are used you must provide a medical certificate to still be able to claim CCS.
