Fees are payable at the conclusion of each weeks of attendance. Fees apply for all days booked including Public Holidays and Sick Days for the full 52 weeks of a calendar year. Fees must be paid by established direct debit from a nominated bank account using the Service’s “Qikkids” system.

The Children’s House operates between 7am to 6pm daily. Fees are calculated as a full day of attendance irrespective of whether a child utilizes all of the available daily hours.

 

Bond (6 x the weekly fee amount)

  • 2 Days Program ($129 daily rate x 2 amount of days x 6 weeks) $1548
  • 3 Day Program ($129 daily rate x 3 amount of days x 6 weeks) $2322
  • 5 Day Program ($129 daily rate x 5 amount of days x 6 weeks) $3870

It is a requirement that parents give at least 6 weeks notice in writing to the Children’s House Director to terminate their enrolment agreement.

Once notice has been given, the bond amount held by the Children’s House will be used as payment for the final 6 weeks of attendance. Parents who fail to give 6 weeks written notice will forfeit the entire bond money.

 

Equipment & Sustainability Levy

An annual Equipment & Sustainability Levy is required to cover: ongoing care; maintenance repair of materials and equipment; and green spaces and products that reduces our carbon footprint.

  • 2 Day & 3 Day Programs incur a Levy of $400 – 2 dyas and $500 for 3 days for the year
  • 5 Day Program incurs a Levy of $800 for the year

The full Equipment & Sustainability Levy is to be paid prior to commencement of your child’s attendance at the Children’s House and will be pro-rated for any enrolments that occur after the commencement of the Calendar year. Please note that this Levy is not claimable through CCB/CCR.
