As the Centre is a non profit organisation we always try to keep our fees as low as possible to ensure that a wide range of families can use our service. Fees are reviewed annually by the committee of management. The Co-ordinator will inform you of the current fees during your initial visit.

From July 2007 we have introduced a Goanna Kinder fee for those children who are completing their kinder year at DCCCC and not using another funded pre-school.
This is in recognition that we receive some State Government funding for those children. If your child is attending a non-funded program eg Steiner Kinder then you may still be eligible for the pre-school subsidy.

Child Care Benefit is available to qualifying families. The Co-ordinator will give you details about your eligibility and how to apply.

FULL FEES will be charged until the Centre receives confirmation from the F.A.O. of the percentage of Child Care Benefit that the family is entitled to. Fees will be adjusted back to the date of lodgement of the application. Reassessment of your eligibility for Child Care Benefit will occur every 12 months but, if your circumstances change, it is your responsibility to inform the F.A.O.

Accounts are issued weekly for the first few weeks until families get to know what their fees are. After this time unless you have a change in subsidy rates or change your booked hours, we will expect you to keep your account up to date at all times.

Failure to keep your account up to date may jeopardise your child care place. During any absences from the Centre a 100% holding fee is charged. Please consult the Centre co-ordinator if you are experiencing financial difficulties or having trouble paying your account.
