Fees & Enrolment

Fees: Here at Regand Park ECEC we offer full day sessions only. 

Our daily fees:

  • $97.00 for Infants & Babies Rooms (0-2 years)
  • $93.00 for Toddlers (2-3 year olds) and
  • $90.00 for Junior & Senior Preschool (3-5 year olds)

Fees may change from time to time.

As a truly fuss free service, this daily fee includes:

  • your child’s education, care and tuition fee,
  • nutritious meals and drinks: morning/afternoon tea and a two course lunch,
  • linen, and
  • nappies and wipes.

All you need to bring is a few sets of spare clothes, a water bottle, nappy cream or powder (please no nut based cream products), any milk/formula bottles, dummies and/or a special rest time comforter, like a blanket or teddy, your child may need if enrolling in our Infants, Babies or Toddler rooms.
Please note: toys from home are not permitted at Regand Park ECEC as these cause arguments between children and may get lost or broken.

At Regand Park ECEC, we offer care in sessions. Research shows that children benefit from consistent environments, relationships and interactions. Consistency provides repetition that strengthens connections in the brain. By having sessions here at Regand Park ECEC we are allowing children to create secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships with their educators and peers; have a sense of belonging to our service and be able to extend on their interests, skills and learning.

You can download a copy of our Parent Hanbook, which summarises our policies and provides more detail about our service and sessions by clicking here.

As we are an approved Early Childhood Service, families at Regand Park ECEC are entitled to lodge a claim for Child Care Subsidy (CCS) to assist with the payment of your child’s fees.  Please contact Centrelink on 136 150 or login to your my.gov.au account to have your gross family income assessed for claiming CCS. Centrelink will then determine your percentage (%) of the current subsidy and number of hours approved for payment you are entitled to. Once you have been assessed for CCS, your child’s Care Agreement with Regand Park ECEC will need to be confirmed in your myGov account in order for your subsidy to be paid to our service. If your child is enrolled and starts care before a claim is made, and the claim is delayed, the individual will not be eligible for CCS for any sessions of care that occurred more than 28 days before. We calculate a reduced fee for our families based on the information provided by you and the Child Care Subsidy System (CCSS). We encourage all families to register, lodge a claim for CCS and complete assessments prior to commencing care. Once a family has a CCS percentage and approved hours, we can provide you with a quote for the care you require.

Other fees and levies include:

  • A one off Administration Fee of $20 per family.  This fee is to be paid upon submitting your waiting list application and covers the cost of processing your application for enrolment.  Please Note: We only fill vacancies from our Waiting list. If you would like to place you child on our waiting list, you can register here.
  • A Holding Bond of two weeks full fees, is payable in advance upon enrolment. This acts as a security deposit for your child’s position and rolls over each year your child attends.  Upon leaving the service, Holding Bonds are refunded when final payments/refunds have been finalised by the CCSS, providing you provide a FULL two (2) weeks notice in writing and your account is up to date. 
  • A hat payment of $10.00 per child. 
  • A sunscreen payment of $10.00 per child for an individual roll on sunscreen. Should you wish to supply your own due to personal preference or allergies, please supply an individual roll-on for each child attending the service.
  • An Access Fee of $15 to access an online developmental portfolio of your child.

Families at Regand Park ECEC will receive a monthly statement outlining the previous month receipts, and charges for the following month. A guide to help understand your statement is available for veiwing here.
