Late Collection Fee:

The Centre closes at 6.00pm. Please ensure your child/children are picked up before 6:00pm. If children remain after 6:00pm, we are not covered by insurance, and staff shifts are extended, therefore a late collection fee of $10.00 per 10 minutes applies and will be charged to your account. Staff would appreciate a phone call if you are running late so we can inform your child/children that everything is alright. Consistent late collections may result in cancellation of your child’s enrolment.

Non-Notification Fee:

It’s important that the Centre is notified by phone call, answering machine or by form that a child is going to be absent. The Centre has incorporated a Non-Notification Fee into our policies. If the Centre is not notified that a child is not attending the Centre, we need to track where the child is. If the child’s parents can’t be contacted half an hour after the session has commenced and the child is on the roll it is procedure that the Police are to be contacted and a search commenced until the child is accounted for.The fee for not notifying the Centre is $15.00 for morning, afternoon and vacation care sessions.

Additional Fees Information:

If fees are not paid up-to-date by the end of each week, Staff will not accept further casual bookings until fees are paid up-to-date.
