Fees Policy

  • Fees are required to be paid two weeks in advance. Days cannot be swapped during the week.
  • Full fees are charged for all booked days, regardless of attendance at the centre.
  • Fees will be charged for all Public Holidays and annual leave/holiday absences.
    To maintain your child’s place in the service over holiday/annual leave absences, you will be required to pay full fees.
Childcare Benefit & Childcare Cash Rebate

Families who have children enrolled with us at Avondale Heights Childcare and Early Learning Centre may be eligible for fee assistance in the form of childcare benefit and/or childcare rebate.

To be eligible for one or both types of fee assistance, families must meet certain eligibility criteria, as determined by the Federal Government. Additionally, families must be registered with the Family Assistance office.

Families not eligible for the Childcare Benefit will still be required to register with the Family Assistance Office to claim the Child Care Cash Rebate if eligible. Full fees will be paid until you are assessed as being eligible.

We are proud to be able to facilitate payment of the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Cash Rebate (CCR); parents pay only the amount due after the benefits have been deducted.

Late Fees

The Children’s Services Regulation 1998 requires a Centre to have 2 Educators present at all times children are in attendance.

Therefore, if a child is not collected by closing time (6.30pm) a late fee of $10.00 for every 10 minutes, or part thereof, may be charged.

Leaving us?

If you wish to withdraw your child from our services, we kindly request two weeks notice.

If less than two weeks notice is given, we reserve the right to charge for a two week period. Please Note: Child Care Benefit cannot be claimed if your child does not attend during this period.
