For further details on charges and late fees refer to our Fee Policy Statement, which is given to families on enrolment and signed by parents.

Fees are payable for every day of your child’s enrolment, regardless of any absence.

This includes family holidays, sick days and exclusion periods for infectious conditions as stipulated by the National Health and Medical Research Council.

After school care is charged at a daily rate of $42; daily casual care costs $44, and our weekly rate is $180. Vacation care/pupil-free days attract a daily rate of $94.

After school care bookings are not charged for during the state school vacation periods or public holidays that fall immediately before or after the school holidays. All public holidays that fall during the school term attract charges.

State school professional development days will be advertised and can be booked as a full day of care as required.

Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR)

We encourage all families to contact the Department of Human Services (DHS) to obtain a Customer Reference Number (CRN) for themselves and their child and organise an assessment for Child Care Benefit (CCB) / Child Care Rebate (CCR).

Any Child Care Benefit (CCB) and/or Child Care Rebate (CCR) fee reductions will be included in your child’s fee once the correct information is provided to the child care service and assessed by the Department through the Child Care Management System (CCMS).

Two weeks’ notice is required in writing if you wish to cancel your place and/or make any changes to your child’s enrolment. If your child does not attend the centre during their last two weeks of care, CCB will not be applied and full fees will be charged (in accordance with Department of Education guidelines).

Payments

Payments can be made by direct transfer to our bank account (preferred), cash, cheque or salary packaging (UWA staff only).

It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure that you have a current salary packaging contract with UWA Human Resources and that you sign and complete the salary packaging form provided to you by the Child Care Service, and return the form to the salary packaging department for processing.

Families that salary package their fees will not be entitled to Child Care Benefit or the Child Care Rebate.
