Our fees, rebates & withdrawals

An easy process!

Our service uses the Xplor app. Fees are charged fortnightly. A statement can be obtained through the xplor program and has a running total. The Xplor system uses the Debit success system as it is the quickest and easiest method. You can change your bank details in your own app.

Fees remain payable during holidays and illness. Should you be going away or have a sick child, please phone the centre.

A non-refundable administration fee of $100.00 is payable along with a refundable holding deposit of $350.00 per child. This deposit will be refunded when your child leaves our centre.

*Please note: Fees are charged per room regardless of the age of the child.
