The Department of Education conducts regular audits of centres to ensure Child Care Benefit claims are genuine. We need to provide proof of bookings therefore we must maintain accurate attendance records. Parents are required to sign each child in and out at the beginning and end of each day they attend.

Permanent bookings have priority over casual bookings except in emergencies when the casual booking is of a higher priority rating to the permanent booking.

Casual bookings provide families with increased flexibility of care as childcare is used and paid for, only as required.

Unfortunately casual bookings are only available when there is space at the Centre. Therefore it is prudent to book casual care in advance. Regular casual bookings are limited to 5 consecutive weeks, after which time the booking will be considered to be permanent; all the obligations of a permanent booking will apply and two weeks notice of cancellation will be required.

Once booked, a casual session will be charged. Casual bookings must be paid for on the day.

Fees are payable for all permanent bookings including days absent due to sickness or holidays. Please notify the Centre two weeks in advance if your child/ren will be absent for any length of time.

Your normal fee applies to the following:

  • Public holidays
  • Sickness
  • Holidays
