The fees for 2018/2019 are $93.00 per day for a child enrolled in the Butterfly Room and $96.00 per day for a child enrolled in the Caterpillar Room.  These fees are for a full day.

You may be eligible to receive assistance from the Federal Government to help you with the cost of child care. See the Fact Sheets below for more information.

Our fee policy involves doing our best to 'sell' positions to casual enrolments if your child is not able to attend care on particular days, meaning no charge of fees to you if the position is sold. Not all child care centres offer this service.

We also do not charge for Public Holidays.

Working Bee Levy

The working bee levy is a yearly payment of $30.00 per family and this ensures our yards are maintained and tidy for the children to play in.

Late Fee

As the Centre is only licensed to care for children from 8.00am to 6.00pm we cannot be responsible for children before and after these hours.

The Centre has a policy that $10.00 per child will be charged for any child on the premises after 6.00pm, and an extra $1.00 per minute will be charged until the child is picked up.
