A booking fee of $50 is payable when your booking is confirmed. For this your child is provided with an Ally’s Kindy shirt and drink bottle. As we run our fees on a weekly in advance basis, on commencent, you will be paying one in advance. If we are able to approximate what your weekly fee will be (less Childcare Benefit) you will only need to pay this reduced amount. Fees are then payable weekly by the Ezidebit Direct Debit payment system or Fortnightly Directly from any Centrelink benefit via Centrepay. If you are paid your salary on a fortnightly or monthly basis, it is your responsibility to ensure your funds are sufficient to cover your payments.
Due to pressure on places at the Centre, families whose direct debit payments are declined for two consecutive payments without prior and reasonable explanations will, upon warning, lose their place to one of the children on the waiting list.
In very special circumstances, Special Childcare Benefit is available from the Families Assistance Office for those families experiencing extreme financial difficulties. Application for this benefit is made by the Centre and is at the discretion of the Families Assistance Office.
Please also note that the CCB application must be re-submitted EVERY year.
A holiday discount of 50% of your gap fee is offered to two normal weeks of each financial year. This is conditional of your account being paid upto date and written notice of 2 weeks being provided to the centre of impending holidays.
