Pay Only For The Care You Use
Fees are calculated on an hourly basis at $15.50 per hour per child (as at Jan 2018). Fees are paid via direct debit.
Please see us at the Occasional Care Centre office for a copy of our Direct Debit Form.
Fees are set by the Committee of Management and are subject to change, depending on the Annual Budget and Government Policy. Two weeks notice of any increase in fees will be given.
There is no charge for non-attendance eg. cancellations, holidays, illness etc.
Child Care Rebate
The Child Care Rebate is a payment for parents or guardians who both meet the 'work, study, training test'. The Child Care Rebate is NOT income tested.
The Child Care Rebate reimburses families 50% of their out of pocket child care costs up to $7,500- a year for each child. We recommend that the Child Care Rebate be paid directly to our Service so families only need pay the 'gap'.
Commonwealth Childcare Benefit is also available to assist families. It is a payment made to families to assist with the cost of childcare. The level of subsidy is based on your gross family income. To receive this benefit, an application form must be submitted to the Family Assistance Office.
