Fees

Fees & Finances

The cost is $76 per day.

Fees are billed for the year with the exception of holiday periods, until two weeks’ notice to withdraw is given in writing. This includes any day’s absences. Children attending the Kindergarten program will be billed through to Term 4 until Friday 8 December, 2017. Fees are to be paid fortnightly in advance via Ezidebit set up at the time of commencement. Full fees are payable for absences due to family holidays, illness and also for days when Suncoast Little Learners is closed for statutory holidays.

Fee increases occur on 1 July each year in line with the CCB increase. Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) Suncoast Little Learners is a registered long-day care and hence, families are eligible to claim the Child Care Benefit (CCB). We recommend that you inform Centrelink to release the CCR funding directly to Little Learners and this will be deducted automatically from your fees.

Health Care Card Funding

Health Care Card Funding is available for Parents/Guardians who hold a Health Care Card and attend the Kindergarten Program. Please see the Enrolment Officer, Janelle Appo for more information. Page 10 of the Suncoast Little Learners Parent Handbook.

Late Fees

If children are collected after closing time, late fees may be charged at the rate of $1 per minute to cover the payment of overtime to staff. It is important that parents phone Suncoast Little Learners if they are going to be late. If this has not happened, the emergency contact persons indicated by parents will be asked to collect the child/ren. In the event that neither parents nor emergency contact persons can be reached by 6:30pm, the local police department will be informed.

T-Shirt, Sunhat and Sunscreen Levy

Each family will be charged a $33 Hat, T-shirt and Sunscreen levy per calendar year. Children will be issued with a named hat that is kept at Suncoast Little Learners.

Reading Eggs

Children enrolled in the Kindergarten program will require access to Reading Eggs. Other children are welcome to access this program also. This is an excellent early literacy program that your child will be able to access at Little Learners and also at home. You can access this program for $25 throughout 2017. The program will be charged to your fees in Term 1.
