Paymet of Fees

Fees must be paid for every day your child is enrolled, including when your child is sick or on holidays or public holidays (excluding the one week stand-down period at Christmas)

A full daily fee is charged regardless of the number of hours you child attends.

Fees are payable fifty-one (51) weeks of the year

  • Fees are to be kept one week in advance at all times.
  • Our fee system is computerised using ‘Kidsoft’ software. Receipts and invoices will be issued by email or paper.
  • FEE Payment Options: BY DIRECT DEBIT by Numero Pro only
  • Full fees will be charged until you have confirmed your child’s enrolment via your myGov account and we have been notified by Centrelink.

Any queries in relation to billing can be handled by calling the Centre.

It is your responsibility to sign your child into and out of the Centre. This is a licensing requirement as well as a condition for claiming Child Care Subsidy.


What is Child Care Subsidy?

Child Care Subsidy is a payment from the Australian Government that helps you with the cost of your childcare.

Who can get Child Care Subsidy?

You can get Child Care Subsidy if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending childcare services approved by, or registered with the Government. 

You can get Child Care Subsidy if:

  • you have a child in your care who meets the immunisation requirements [1] (or have an exemption)
  • you or your partner (if you have one) meet residency requirement [2] (or have an exemption)
  • your child attends approved [3] or registered care [4] and you have the ability to pay for the cost of your child care
  • you meet the income test

How much child Care Subsidy can I get?

The amount you get depends on your circumstances:

  • the type of care you use (approved or registered)
  • your income
  • the amount of care you use
  • the reason you are using care and
  • the number of children you have care
  • Visit Centrelink for more information & subsidy calculators


How do places get filled?

When filling vacant places, we fill our places according to the following priorities:
Priority 1: a child at risk of serious abuse or neglect.
Priority 2: a child of a single parent who satisfies, or of parents who both satisfy the work, training, study test.
Priority 3: any other child.
Within these main Priority categories, priority should also be given to children in:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families
  • Families which include a disabled person
  • Families on lower incomes
  • Families from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Socially isolated families
  • Single parent families

WWEYLC also has internal priority of access principles that reflect priority for five days per week care, children of people working at WWEYLC; siblings of children already in care and children in part-week care who are moving to full-time care.

What if my child is absent? Do I still pay? Do I need to notify you?

Absent days are still charged at the same rate as regular care days and you will still receive your Child Care Subsidy entitlement for up to 42 absences per financial year. This includes public holidays throughout the year.
