Payment Of Fees
Following a once off enrolment fee, it is our policy that family’s weekly fees must be 2 weeks in advance. The parent must then continue to pay the weekly fee in advance in order to maintain a credit balance equivalent to 2 week of fees.
All payments must be made via EZIDebit and all families must complete an EZIDebit application form upon enrolment. In consultation with management, EFTPOS may be available however, requests are carefully assessed and not guaranteed to be approved. Our service has a no cash policy.
All children’s booked days, including public holidays, holidays and absent days must be paid to retain your child’s place. Late fees are charged if children remain in the centre after closing times.
Two weeks’ notice is required if you wish to cancel a booking. Failure to do so will require parents to pay two weeks full fees. All accounts must be finalised within seven days and any outstanding accounts will be forwarded to debt collection agencies.
