It is essential parents realise that the hours are strict and children must be registered after the advertised times. We cannot accept responsibility for children who are dropped off earlier and collected later than these advertised times. Late fees apply $1.00 per minute will be charged. However, please call if possible so we don’t worry about you!
The standard full fees are $52 a day for Vacation care, $15 a day for Before school care and $23 for After school care.
However, if you are registered with Family Assistance Office (FAO) for the Child Care Benefit it can work out extremely economical. In addition to the savings regarding CCB above when you sign up to have your Child Care Rebate paid to our service, your out of pocket expenses will be 50% less (This includes excursion fees!)
As at 5 January 2017 an approximate out of pocket cost to a family on maximum CCB percentage is $4.51 per day for After School Care where CCR is also set to come back to Community OOSH.
If you already receive any type of assistance from FAO, such as Family Payment, then you are already registered with FAO. To enquire about your children’s’ or family Customer Number (CRN) or CCB%, call 136 150 between 8am – 8pm. Check you are also registered for the 50% rebate for out of pocket expenses, as it is a separate registration. Nominate Community OOSH Services as your provider to receive the rebate and halve your bills and out of pocket costs.
