Fee Payment Agreement


  • Fees must be paid weekly.
  • Childcare costs not covered by CCS, are to be paid by the enrolling parent/guardian.
  • If CCS is pending, a minimum of 50% of fees need to be paid weekly, with the balance of account due once CCS is finalised.
  • If the parent/guardian becomes ineligible for any subsidy, they will be responsible for paying the full fee.
  • Late pick-ups will incur a fee.
  • Debit recovery may be referred to our debt collection agency and all legal fees and commission incurred will be payable by the enrolling parent/guardian.
  • A 50% fee discount is offered to all staff members who are parents/guardians or partners of parents/guardians of children who attend our centres.


  • If your child is absent for any reason, please notify the centre immediately. Two weeks advance notice in writing is required if you intend to withdraw your child from care.
  • A discounted fee per day will apply for permanent bookings for family holidays, and notification must be given at least 2 weeks in advance in writing.
  • 24hrs notice must be given for any cancellation or change to a casual booking.
  • Fees must be paid for all permanent bookings even when the child is absent due to illness and public holidays however a make-up day is offered in these circumstances and must be used within 30 days.
  • For Vacation Care bookings, I understand if my booking is cancelled within a rostered week, I will still be charged for those bookings.
  • If your child is absent on their last booked session Centrelink will not pay Child Care Subsidy for that day. Full fees will apply. This includes the two weeks’ notice period.


  • A statement of your account is available on your OWNA app.

It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep all information (i.e.: relationship status, work/school status, family income, reason for care, address, phone number etc.) current with Centrelink and BlueBird Child Care.


I have read and understood the fee policy, including fee payment, termination, absences and public holidays.
