      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.

      Holding fees

      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.

      Public Holidays

      No charge.

      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.

        A decision to begin helping a child toilet train at the centre will be made by parents and educators together. The decision will be made as a result of seeing signs of readiness and interest from the child. To maintain a high level of hygiene, children will need to wear a pull up or nappy until both parents and educators are confident that their child is ready.

        Your child does not need to sleep at care. This is an individual routine decision that is made on the need of each child. When children begin to decrease their sleep needs, educators will communicate with families, making decisions on children’s needs.

      • Who can collect my child?

        Any collection authority person on the child’s enrolment form. If someone else needs to collect your child, this is to be confirmed in writing. Photo identification will be required if educators are unsure who is collecting.
