Fees

Our commitment to you:

Treasure cove has a commitment to ensuring our fees are as affordable as possible and that all families have access to Centrelink subsidies that are available to reduce fees (Child Care benefit and Childcare rebate.)

As these differ for each family, your fees will be determined according to each individual circumstance.

Enrolment Fee:

Our enrolment fee is $150 per child. This includes sunscreen which is provided throughout the year.

Bond:

We do not charge a bond but require you to pay 2 weeks fee in advance which will be adjusted when you start receiving CCS. This way you will always be paying your fees 2 weeks in advance.

Fees rise policy:

In general we aim to set our yearly fee in January and then not change them for the full year, giving parents the benefit of reduced fees from July when Child Care benefit is increased in line with the C.P.I. If we have to change our fees due to unforseen conditions then all families will be notified 2 months in advance to make necessary arrangements.

Why are the fees higher for 2’s and babies?

The higher daily costs for under 2’s and 2-3’s groups reflect the increased staffing required in these rooms as well as the provision of nappies, etc. Children two and over but under three require a staff/child ration of 1:5 and Children under two (classified as babies) require a Staff/Child ratio 1:4.

Fees are class grouped not age grouped:

If your child remains in the same room though he/she can move up age wise after their birthday,  your fees will remain at the rate applicable to your child’s current room as our mandated staffing ratios are class based.
