Fees With The 20 Hours ECE Subsidy

The following prices apply to 3 and 4 year olds using the 20 Hours ECE subsidy.

The government subsidies up to 6 hours per day, so if your child is a “full-dayer”, that is 7 hours with us, we need to charge you $16.00 for that additional hour.

Pricing Examples:

  • 1 day / 7 hours
    • 6 hours are covered by ECE
    • So you pay $16.00 for the 7th hour
  • 2 days / 14 hours
    • 12 hours are covered by ECE (6+6)
    • So you pay $32 (for hour #7 and hour #14)
    • 2 x $16.00 = $32
  • 3 days / 21 hours
    • 18 hours are covered by ECE (6+6+6)
    • So you pay $48.00 (for hour #7, #14, #21)
    • 3 x $16.00 = $48.00
  • 4 days / 28 hours
    • 20 hours are covered by ECE (6+6+6+2). ECE Max = 20 hours.
    • So you pay $90 (for hour #7, #14, #21, #24, #25, #26, #27, #28)
    • 8 x $16.00 = $90
  • 5 days / 35 hours
    • 20 hours are covered by ECE (6+6+6+2). ECE Max = 20 hours.
    • So you pay $145.00 (for hour #7, #14, #21, #24, #25, #26, #27, #28, #29, #30, #31, #32, #33, #34, #35)
    • 15 x $16.00 = $145.00

What you need to do for the ECE subsidy:

  • Enrol your child with us to benefit from 20 Hours ECE

Optional $2.50/hour Charge

Our pricing and the ECE subsidy covers most of our costs, but not all, for 3 reasons:

  1. The quality of our centre is high because 100% of our team are qualified and experienced teachers
  2. Our teacher-to-child ratio is above the minimum
  3. We offer a variety of sessions for you to choose from

So we do invite parents to pay an optional fee of $2.50 per hour if their finances allow them to do so. Eg:

  • 3 hour session: $7.50 (optional charge)
  • 4 hour session: $10 (optional charge)
  • 7 hour session: $17.50 (optional charge)

Payment Terms

  • Fees are invoiced weekly and are emailed to you
  • Clients with fees unpaid at the end of each term will receive a statement and reminder letter
  • Fees to be paid on receipt of invoice
  • Fees may also be paid monthly or by term instalments, please see Tracy (Manager) if you wish to pay this way
  • Days that children are absent are still to be paid for as this ensures a place is kept
  • Two weeks notice in writing is required to cancel your child’s space at kindergarten

Working for Families Subsidies

  • Work and Income subsidies are available
  • Minimum attendance of 3 hours
  • Income criteria, forms and further information are available from the Manager
  • WINZ Childcare Subsidies are credited weekly to client accounts

All matters relating to fees will be treated with absolute confidentiality.
