Fees and Subsidies
Fees are due one week in advance, and are payable by EFTPOS, credit card, cash, cheque or via internet banking and automatic payments. Fees are based on your child’s age. Where your child’s account becomes two weeks in arrears, your child’s place may no longer be made available to them. The outstanding balance will be passed on to a debt collection agency as well as any other costs incurred in collection of the debt. It is our policy to review fees regularly and make changes where necessary.

20 Hours ECE Funding
This is available to 3 and 4 year olds only. Children receive funding for up to 6 hours a day, for a maximum of 20hrs per week across all childcare services your child may attend. The minimum booking for our Preschool room is 3 days per week.
This centre supports families receiving WINZ subsidies and in some cases CYFS and ACC payments. However fees must be paid in full until the letter of confirmation is received from WINZ/CYFS/ACC. Any credit held when subsidies are paid, will stay on account and parents will be notified of this and asked to stop automatic payments for a certain amount of time. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that all paper work is processed and received by WINZ on time. Any delays could result in the parent having to pay full fees until the subsidy is received.
There is a charge of $25 per 15 minutes or part thereof when a child is collected after 5.30 pm. This is billed to your account. If you are running late, please contact the centre as our staff often have commitments outside of working hours.
