2018 Fees

Permanent Bookings
Fees are calculated on a sliding scale, depending on the number of days/week utilised.
  • Full day for child under 3 years of age: $109
  • Full day for child over 3 years of age: $107
  • Full time (5 day week) all ages : $500
Occasional Care
  • Up to full day : $130
Special Sibling Discounts
Sibling discounts are $2 per day per child in care (eg. a family of 3 children receive a total $6 discount per day).

Please note that sibling discounts do not apply to full time fees (which are already discounted).

A bond amount is required relative to the number of days per week booked. A bond is fully refunded when 2 weeks notice is provided to conclude care that is in progress (but non-refundable if care does not commence).

50% Child Care Tax Rebate
If you and your partner are working, training or studying you may be entitled to the 50% Child Care Tax rebate. You can check Centrelink's Childcare Rebate details to confirm your eligibility.

Bookings / Parent Liaison:

Please be aware that Smartie Pants Early Learning and Development periodically reviews its fees in line with incremental cost increases to its business, such as increases to payroll, food etc. In the event that we do increase our fees, the reasons for these increases will be explained and adequate notice of at least 4 weeks provided.
