Fees & Enrolment

Settling in

We provide an extensive settling in program for children and their families to help them feel comfortable and familiar with the Early Learning Centre.

Families are introduced to educators in their child’s room and the room’s leading teacher develops a settling in timetable to suit each family’s needs.

We advise it is best for children to be enrolled for a minimum of two days a week. This is because it is hard for a child to form close relationships with educators and friendships with other children if they only attend one day a week.

Fees

The Early Learning Centre is committed to affordable fees for families.

The fees are:

Children aged 0-3 years                               $82.50 per day

Children aged 3-4 years                               $77.50 per day

Fees are charged on a daily basis whether your child attends full or part time

Fees are charged for all Public Holidays (except the Christmas period)

Fees can be paid at reception via cash, eftpos, credit card or cheque. Other payment options are Centrepay via a family’s Centrelink payment and BPay.

Please note if a child does not attend on their first or last day of enrolment the full daily fee will apply to those days.

Help with fee costs

Parents can get help to pay fees, if they meet the requirements set out by the Australian government. For example Child Care Benefit (CCB) is a payment from the government that helps families with the cost of child care.
