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, SMS or by email that a child is going to be absent.  If the Centre is not notified that a child is not attending the Centre, a non – notification fee of $15.00 will be charged. This fee is charged for the administration time that it takes for Educators to contact families to see why their child has not attended the centre for aftercare sign in.

If the child’s parents/carer can’t be contacted half an hour after the session has commenced, it is procedure that the Police and school Principle are to be contacted and a search commenced until the child is accounted for. We understand parents are busy and may just forget to tell us, but that child whom is listed on our rolls is our responsibility for that afternoon.

CANCELLATIONS OR CHANGES:

  • If parents wish to cancel their child’s enrolment at The BPCC they are required to provide TWO (2) WEEK’S notice in writing in order to have fees waived. Failure to do so will result in full fees being charged.
