Fees

Please refer to the Fees Schedule that is available from the Reception. Invoices are issued weekly. For the smooth running of the Center, it is very important that your fees are kept at least one week in advance. All overdue fees will be sent to a debt collection agency and the parents will be responsible for all fees charged by this agency.

 

20 Hours Free

 

The Kiddie Academy offers the Free 20 hour subsidy which is provided by the Ministry of Education to all 3-6 year old children. To be eligible you must complete an Attestation form which confirms your attendance and that you are not attending another Early Childhood Center at the same time as you have applied funding here. If you change your enrolment hours you must complete another form. You may apply for this subsidy from more than one Center, but you must indicate this on your form. You may apply for the Free 20 hours subsidy and receive money from Work and Income, but we recommend that you discuss this with your case worker.
