Fees are required to be paid by Automatic Payment weekly in advance of the period of the childs enrolled attendance e.g. by the Friday of the week before to care.
Statements will be sent to all families at the end of the day, every Monday via email or if requested by families. Any accounts that are in arrears will be sent weekly statements until the account is cleared. Any families that receive WINZ payments need to know that WINZ subsidies are paid at least one week in arrears directly to the Centre.
Fees must be paid for every day that your child is enrolled, including any day your child is enrolled to attend but is absent. This includes all statutory holidays that fall on a day when your child would normally attend the Centre and days that your child is sick or injured.
Fees are subject to change and may be increased when necessary at the discretion of the Centre – at least 3 month’s notification will be given.
Work & Family
Some families will be eligible for subsidies from WINZ. We have forms for you that we can fill out on your behalf once you have enrolled to start at the Centre. You will then be required to set up the meeting with WINZ to be granted a subsidy. WINZ make payments directly to the Centre which will show on your statement (these are 2 weeks in arrears).
The Centre will notify WINZ if your child turns 3 and is taking up the ECE hours or if your child leaves the Centre. All other communication regarding changes need to be directed to WINZ from the family.
