Fee Structure

Fees vary between educators in the following range:

  • Long Day Care $110.00 – $120/day.
  • After School Care $33.00 – $36.00/session (3:00pm 6:00pm).
  • Vacation Care (school age children only) $66.00 – $72/per day (9:00am to 3:00pm).
  • Late Pickup Fee – Charged at Educator’s discretion.
  • Enrolment Fee $50.00 (One-off)
  • Bond (Refundable) 2 weeks fees.

Fees are collected fortnightly in advance by FDC Coordination Unit. Parents are asked to sign a direct debit authority upon enrolment as this is our preferred method of payment. Payments are processed by “iDebit pro”. iDebitPro is Australia’s premier childcare solution for recurring payments within the Industry due to the integration of Kidsoft (CCMS) and iDebitPro. It allows for extremely flexible payment schedules and accurate collection of direct debit payments from a family’s chosen credit or debit card, BPAY, or bank account.

Fees are charged as per booked hours except where actual hours are greater than booked hours. Fees include scheme levies, nappies, wipes, sunscreen and sheets for sleeping. Most of our Educators do not supply meals, however, in the case where Educators supply meals it will be charged separately by the Educator.

Child Care Benefit (CCB) & Child Care Rebate (CCR)

The Australian Government provides families with two types of financial assistance to help cover the costs of approved child care – the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate (CCR). Artarmon Family Day Care is an approved service for the purpose of CCB and CCR.

Child Care Benefit: The Child Care Benefit is income tested. It is usually paid directly to the approved Child Care Service to reduce the fees that eligible families pay.

Child Care Rebate: You may choose to receive CCR paid fortnightly, either directly to your bank account, or through your child care service provider as a fee reduction. You still have the option of having your CCR paid quarterly or annually as a lump sum directly to your bank account.

It is the parent’s responsibility to maintain contact with Centrelink regarding any changes that may affect their eligibility.
