Administration Fee

In order to secure your Childs position with us we ask you pay a one off non-refundable administration fee of $50, upon making this payment you will agree to a commencement date for your child and will be accountable to pay fees from this date.  This helps to ensure the enrolment process runs smoothly for you and your child.

Bond

There is a $150.00 bond payable to your child’s enrolment this helps us to ensure your child enjoys the highest quality of education and care. This amount will be refunded to your childcare account when you leave the centre (provided that the specified notice period is given in writing see parent handbook) After settling your Child care account when the time comes top move on from the Academy any remaining funds in your bond will be refunded to you.

Fees are taken via direct debit each fortnight in advance so families need to sign a Direct Debit form on enrolment to set this system up- everything is automatic and no fuss so you can set and forget!
