Fees are due and payable every four weeks and a reminder note is placed in your individual pocket, stating the amount due, which is continually the same unless the amount of days your child attends Preschool has changed, or your child care benefit/rebate percentage has changed.
- Fees MUST be paid up to date, by the end of the four week period.
- If fees fall into arrears, your child’s place at the centre will be jeopardized and may be offered to someone on the waiting list.

You have the option to receive your CCR paid fortnightly, either directly to your bank account, or through your child care service provider as a fee reduction. You still have the option of having your CCR paid quarterly or annually as a lump sum directly to your bank account.
