Priority of access – prioritising vacancies

  • There are no mandatory requirements for filling vacancies, and providers can set their own policies for prioritising who receives a place.

However, as vacancies in a service arise, providers are asked to consider prioritising children who are:

  1. at risk of serious abuse or neglect
  2. a child of a sole parent who satisfies, or parents who both satisfy, the activity test through paid employment

This reflects the Australian Government’s intention to help families who are most in need, and support

the safety and well being of children at risk in accordance with the Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009 -2020.

late fees
If your child is collected from the Centre after 6:00pm, you will be charged a late fee.

 

Attendance and Absence

Once a child is enrolled at the Centre, payment of fees must be continued during the child’s absence for illness, holidays, etc. When a child is absent for any reason we must be notified. The Centre is open for fifty weeks per year; the only period during which we are closed is Public Holidays (no charge) and two weeks at Christmas (no charge). Dates will be advised.

 

Notice of Withdrawal

It is our policy that parents must give 4 (four) weeks written (28 days) notice before they withdraw from the Centre. If notice is not given, 4 weeks of fees will be added onto your account, monies will be retrieved from bond fees paid in advance at enrolment.

At the time of cancellation, up to an eight week period may elapse before families receive any bonds owed to them. The Centre will ensure families accounts are reconciled with the Family Assistance Office prior to refunds being forwarded. Refunds are forwarded via direct deposit.
