As our centre operates the preschool within a Long Day Care facility, we can offer Government Childcare Benefits and tax rebates for eligible families. You are required to provide a CRN number for both the child and parent claiming CCB/CCR. Please see the following links for additional information:
We are licensed until 6.00 pm. As staff are employed only until 6.00 pm, it is important out of respect for staff that children be collected by this time. If you collect your child after 6.00 pm a late fee will apply. The late fee also applies to families enrolled in the short day option(4.00pm pickup), but are late picking their child up.

These are our preferred options, however, we can be flexible to suit family circumstances and work commitments.
The Centre closes for 2 week each year from Christmas through to early January. Fees are not charged during this time.
Fees are payable for those days your child may be absent from the Centre for any reason including illness or holidays. Public Holidays also incur payment as usual.
