Other Information about Daycare Fees

  • Spaces in each session and age group are limited on each day.  A waiting list system operates for new enrolment and increases of hours/days, when the desired hours/days are not available.
  • We accept enrolments for as little as two sessions per week.
  • When enrolling a deposit/bond of $50 is required to secure your child’s start date. This is credited against your final invoice or refunded if no payment is outstanding to credit it toward.
  • Fees are payable two weeks in advance by automatic payment.
  • Late fees may be charged for children collected after their enrolled time at a rate of $15 per 15 minutes or part there-of.
  • Three weeks’ notice is required when leaving Little Adventurers’ or reducing hours.
  • Late payment or non-payment may result in your child’s enrolment being cancelled and your deposit/bond being forfeited.
  • Should any payment not be made by the due date, Little Adventurers’ Early Learning Centre Ltd reserves the right to hand any outstanding amount to a debt collection company. Late payment penalty, debt collection costs, associated administration costs and interest at 12% p.a. may be added to the debt amount.  Default information regarding the overdue account can be provided by the debt collection company to other parties, including but not limited to credit reporting companies.
  • Prices correct as at August 2020 and include GST.
