Fees are assessed in order to fund the highest quality care and learning program run by tertiary-qualified educators and well experienced assistants, using the best possible physical facilities and equipment, and including food. Harmony fees are based on age, not the group your child is enrolled in. Parents may apply for government subsidy of fees through Centrelink, Medicare, or the Australian Taxation Office. The amount of this Child Care Benefit (CCB) depends on gross family income and the number of dependent children. An additional rebate, which is included in the CCB, is available only for parents who are working, training, studying or looking for work and is income-related.
Fees are payable for bookings whether the child attends or not (i.e., during sickness, public holidays, family holidays etc.), and a refundable Holding Fee is held until termination of enrolment. Overtime rates after 6.00 p.m. are payable directly to the staff member on duty, and a 5 percent Late Payment Fee is charged on overdue
accounts. An Annual Administration Fee covers setup of all paperwork and computer inputs.
Payments may be made by cheque, cash, Eftpos, direct debit, and internet transfer(see below).
Fees as at 2nd June 2008 without any government subsidy are*:
|Under 3 years
|Over 3 years
