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

Enrolment fee: $15.00 per child
Working bee fee: $30.00 per day per family (non-attendance)


PolyHigh is licensed by the Ministry of Education, the centre operates between the hours of 8.00am–5.00pm only.

Late pick-up

Please be aware that PolyHigh is licensed for children from 8.00am–5.00pm and staff rosters start at 8.00am and finish at 5.00pm.  The centre opens at 8.00am 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 jeopardised.


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.
