Schedule of Fees

The Management Committee annually reviews fees and optional charges and sets them at the lowest level possible to ensure increasing costs do not erode the high standard of education, care and facilities for which PolyHigh has become known. These fees are adopted by the parent committee.

Terms of payment

Attendance and ECE fees are payable by automatic payment weekly. All other charges are payable 7 days after invoice. Fees are invoiced for 52 weeks of the year.

NOTE: PolyHigh Community Childcare Centre maintains a policy of using a debt collection agency to recoup any outstanding fees.

Attendance fees

Daily 7.45am – 5.45pm: $67.63 per day
Enrolment fee: $15.00 per child
Working bee fee: $30.00 per day per family (non attendance)

Hours

PolyHigh is licensed by the Ministry of Education, the centre operates between the hours of 7.45am–5.45pm only.

Late pick-up

Please be aware that PolyHigh is licensed for children from 7.45am–5.45pm and staff rosters start at 7.45am and finish at 5.45pm.  The centre opens at 7.45am for children.

A late fee of $25.00 will be charged and $10.00 for every ten minutes thereafter per family. For example, 5 mins late = $25.00, 10 mins late $25.00 + $10.00 = $35.00.

Casual attendance fee

It is recognised that, from time to time, there may be situations where a family wishes to request a casual session.  These casual sessions do not include the 20 free hour’s discount that is offered by the government for permanently booked sessions. Such days will be invoiced at the full attendance fee.

Requests for casual sessions must be made in advance. The Centre Manager will have the right to refuse requests if child/staff ratios or conditions of employment will be jeopardized.

Bond

This is equal to fees for two weeks enrolment, charged at the Attendance fee above.

Enrolment fee

The fee is charged on each new enrolment and is offset against the administration cost of enrolling each child.

ECE hours

Applies for children 3 years and over.

Only if a current Attestation Form is held by PolyHigh for an individual child will these fees apply, otherwise the Attendance Fee applies.

Each session will incur a charge of $6.70 per day for meals.

For non-attested hours a fee of $6.97 an hour will be charged.

This is charged out as per your child’s enrolment.

Fees cover all meals provided by PolyHigh, excellent teacher/child ratios, a generous resource and equipment budget (these are all quality extras over and above the ECE regulations).

Working bee fee

PolyHigh has two working bees each calendar year. These enable PolyHigh to complete routine and unskilled maintenance. Each working bee will be a maximum of four hours and will be carried out on a weekend advised by the Committee.
