Lunch and afternoon tea is inclusive in the fee. The above fee information does not take into account any entitlements to the new Child Care Subsidy (CCS). This payment can assist families with the cost of child care.
This centre is a not for profit Government subsidised centre. This means that all monies from fees and grants are used to pay staff wages and cover operating costs.
Fees are set by the LDCC Board.
The centre will reduce its full fee by 50% upon a family giving 2 weeks notice of an absence (limit 42 days per financial year).
Late pick up fee
If a child has not been collected by the pick up times (if any collection time past 12:45pm or 6:00pm) and an authorised person cannot be contacted, a fee of $10.00 for every 15 minutes [or part thereof] will incur. The situation may be referred to the police.
No child care benefit is claimable against a late fee.
Regular payment of fees is required to retain your child’s booking in the centre, consistently slow payers will be required to pay in advance.
Non payment after 14 days will result in a reminder letter on account.
Non payment after 21 days will result in a second reminder letter attached to the account.
Non payment after 28 days will result in management taking legal action if arrears are not paid in full and care will cease.
