We understand that timely, accurate accounts are important to manage any family budget which is why we use the software program Kidsoft to maintain families accounts. Kidsoft has been approved by the Federal Government to support the Child Care Management System requirements, which provides the Centre with child care assistance information. At Moore Park Gardens Childcare, accounts are settled using Numeropro as our direct billing operator and managed by Alice Voigt, Centre owner, giving our director Joanna, more time to spend with our families.
We understand the value and necessity of consistent and qualified staff, which is why we employ 3 degree qualified full time staff members, where as we are only required to have 1 on the premises. This ensures the high quality of our education and care program is maintained.
This fee is to assist in maintaining a viable waitlist that reflects the needs of our clients and the local community. This waitlist fee can be used towards your bond when first offered a position..
Daily Fee - Children 0-3 Years
Our rates include three nutritious meals and a light late supper. Sustainable bamboo nappies and sunscreen are supplied at the Centre.
Daily Fee - Children 3-5 Years
Use a Fridge-to-go lunch box and pack a health nutritious lunch for the day. Lunch boxes are incorporated into our Transition to School program to support our preschoolers, and families, be better prepared for Primary School. A light late supper is supplied at the Centre.
Payment of Fees
We give families the option to have their child care fees deducted from either their bank account or credit card at the time of enrolment. Fees are paid in advance on the 1st of each month and families receive a monthly statement prior processing for their records. We direct account questions to Alice at firstname.lastname@example.org and away from Joanna our Centre director, allowing her to focus on the operational runnings of Moore Park Gardens Childcare.
Child care assistance is a payment made by the Commonwealth Government on behalf of families to help with the cost of child care. The amount of subsidy is based on family income, the number of dependent children and is decided by the Family Assistance Office. The Centre is not responsible for child care assistance and these may change without notice as per the government regulations.
There are currently two different subsidies, the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate (CCR). Applications for Childcare assistance are available from any Centrelink branch or by calling the Family Assistance Office on 136150. Parents must contact the Family Assistance Office to register for CCB and CCR before starting care.
A new Child Care Package will be introduced in July 2018. Centre policy will be updated when information is made available.
