The 20 Hours ECE scheme provides a basic subsidy for three and four year old children up to a maximum of 20 hours per week or 6 hours per day. This subsidy does not cover the cost of high teacher to student ratios, meals, outings and remaining hours that your child is at the centre. As Elim International Kids provides these additional services, it is necessary for us to charge you for these to cover our costs. Elim International Kids passes the entire subsidy received from the Government directly on to the parent or caregiver through the reduction of fees. Please note that there is a minimum attendance required of 7 hours per day.

Charges will be applied for the days the child is registered for. An additional $10 will be charged for every five minutes you are late in collecting your child.

Payment is for 52 weeks of the year and paid one week in advance by Automatic Payment. (A bond of two week's fees is also required, and refunded at the end of your time at the Centre.) Your first payment will require an additional $20 enrolment fee. Invoices will be issued upon request only. If your child is enrolled, payment is required whether or not your child is able to attend. You are required to advise Elim International Kids four weeks prior to leaving the service.

Parents who are applying for a WINZ subsidy must get the subsidy pre-approved or pay normal fees until the centre receives the subsidy. Centre will reimburse parents for any over payment.

It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that a WINZ subsidy is renewed and they are liable for any shortfall incurred during this period. Parents must pay the first invoice and show proof that an automatic payment has been set up before their child(ren)’s first day of attendance at the Centre.

Note: Fees, education classes, session times may be subject to change.
