Late Collection Fee:

If you collect your child after 6:00pm, you may be charged a late collection fee of $15.00 for every 15 minutes (rounded up to nearest 15 minute block) to cover the cost of the staff who need to stay at the centre with your child. Parents who are late 3 times a term will automatically have their after school care position put on hold, until further notice.

Non-Notification Fee:

It is very important that the Centre is notified by phone call, answering machine or by form that a child is going to be absent.  If the Centre is not notified that a child is not attending the Centre, we need to find where the child is which takes time and attention away from the other children at the centre. If the child’s parents can’t be contacted half an hour after the session has commenced and the child is on the roll, it is procedure that the Police are to be contacted and a search commenced until the child is accounted for. The fee for not notifying the Centre is $15.00 for all sessions.
