Fees are to be paid a week in advance by direct debit. Fees must be paid for every day that your child is enrolled, including any day your child is absent.
Late Payment of Childcare Fees: This may incur a 10% penalty on your account and failure to pay fees may result in a cancellation of your enrolment. If account balances remain unpaid, then all costs of debt collection will be payable by you.
Work and Income: If you have a WINZ subsidy you are still responsible to ensure that your account is paid in advance at all times and any part which is not covered by the subsidy. It is your responsibility to let Work and Income know of any changes to circumstances or your child’s attendance. It is your responsibility to inform Work and Income of any benefits you have through the 20 hours ECE scheme.
20 Hours ECE Free: Our Centre offers the 20 Hours ECE subsidy which is provided by the Ministry of Education to all 3, 4 and 5-year-old children. The cost of your 3 – 5-year-old attending our Centre can be fully funded for a maximum of 6 hours per day for 20 hours per week. This is not based on household income, however to be eligible you must complete a 20 Hours ECE Attestation form. https://parents.education.govt.nz/early-learning/early-childhood-education/20-hours-ece-2/
