Frequently Asked Questions

How much is your daily fee?

Our current daily fee is $135 (as of June 2018).

Australian Citizens and permanent residents are entitled to apply for Child Care Subsidy (CCS) to reduce fees.

From 2 July there will be a new child care package. The package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces the current Child Care Benefit and Rebate. It will be paid directly to the Centre and will make child care more affordable for most families.
