Fees are charged on the permanently enrolled booked hours, or hours attended. Fees payable on invoice are encouraged to be paid by Direct Credit into our bank account;
Please ask for a receipt for cash when paid to the office (No Eftpos available).
Accounts will be emailed on Monday or placed into your child's pocket.
We plan staff rosters weekly and according to ECE ratio regulations and the children booked. The more notice we are given of children's absences, the easier it is to change the ratios to efficiently manage staff and children, as well as allowing other children to attend if space permits.
Parents will be charged for the hours that they have booked or signed for (Not including 20 hrs, per week ECE or WINZ childcare subsidies)
If your child attends full time ( 5 days per week) then they are entitled to 10 sick days per year. Part time is 5 sick days per year.
If 3 weeks notice is given of your child's absence no fees will be charged for up to 3 weeks absence.
WINZ and ECE 20 hours free will cease if the absence is longer than three weeks.
The centre has the right to terminate your child's enrolment in cases of 1 month overdue accounts, and refer outstanding fees including collection costs to debt collection.
WINZ Childcare Subsidy: Many families are eligible for a Childcare subsidy from Work and Income NZ; please ask the Administrator for information and assistance. Please note, 3 weeks or more consecutive absence, WINZ subsidies will cease.
Your child will receive a portfolio reflecting all their experiences and learning at WCK.
The total cost of this is $40.00 per annum to be charged bi-annually 2 x $20.00 which covers the folder and printing costs.
Note, for a child that attends for only 20 free hours, this is an optional charge as provision of a portfolio is not a Ministry of Education requirement.
The centre is reliant on parent fees and funding to continue to operate.
Please communicate with the office if you wish to discuss our fees and absence policy.
