What will it cost?
Babies, Toddlers and Preschool
Our centre is registered so that you can access the child care subsidy (CCS) to offset our full fee for childcare. Our long day care fee is $95 per day, per child. This includes all meals and we will never ask you to fund raise for the centre as this is what your fees are for.
Your weekly out of pocket expense will depend on your CCS percentage, the hours of care you are entitled to per fortnight and your withholding percentage. As an example, if your child comes one day a week and you have a CCS percentage of 85% and a withholding percentage of 5% you weekly fee will be $18.32.
School Age Care
Our full fees for Before School Care and After School Care are $25 per session and $75 for vacation care. Again, your out of pocket expenses will depend on your percentage rate and approved hours.
