Butterflies Early Learning Centre Fees
Sessions & Fees
All fees include morning, lunch and afternoon tea for all ages. We offer 8hr, 9hr and 10hr Sessions daily. We also offer casual daily sessions if required. It is our policy that all families pay their fees one week in advance at all times. Parents must then continue to pay the weekly fees in advance in order to maintain a credit balance equivalent to one week of fees.
Payments can be made via Debit Success, Centrepay, Direct Debt, Etfpos, PayWay or Cash. If you are planning holidays, a holiday application form is available from the office. This form must be filled out two weeks prior to your holiday absence to receive reduced fees.
All children’s booked days, including public holidays and absent days must be paid to retain your booking.
Late fees are charged if children remain in the centre after our closing times at the rate of $250 dollars for every 15 minutes after 6:00pm.
Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a payment made by the Commonwealth Government to help families with the cost of quality child care. A family’s eligibility is subject to an income test, which is administered by the Department of Human Services (DHS).
It is the responsibility of the parent to register for the Child Care Subsidy, through their MyGov account or by phoning Centrelink on 136 150.
With the introduction of the Government’s Child Care Management System (CCMS), families will receive a CCS fee reduction only if they have registered with Centrelink, are eligible for CCS, have a formal enrolment at a childcare centre and the centre has received confirmation from the Government pertaining to the percentage of CCS the family is eligible for. If parents are not eligible for CCS, full childcare fees must be paid.
