All Educators with CCA Family Day Care set their own fees, within the service minimum and maximum fee, and these will be discussed at your interview with the Educator. Your Educator will provide you with a schedule of their fees.
CCA Family Day Care has core standard hours from 8am to 6pm each day. Educators will charge their standards hourly fee during these hours. Outside these hours Educators can charge extra fees – these are non standard hours.
Your Educator will not charge fees if they are on holidays or not operating their service due to some other circumstance.
Fees are still payable if your child is absent due to holidays or illness. This could include the period between Christmas and New Year if your Educator is working during that time.
Fees are also payable if your child’s regular day falls on a public holiday.
Child Care Benefit
Each time your child goes into care at the Educators you must sign them in on the official timesheet. You must enter the time the child is starting care and sign the sheet. When you pick your child up at the end of the day you must sign them out with a time and signature. Your weekly fee amount will also be shown on this timesheet and you will be given a copy of the time sheet at the end of each fortnight.
Your Educator will send the timesheets to our office and we will put all contracted booking times into the Government approved reporting system. If you receive CCB it will go to your Educator to reduce your fee payment.
Families are also eligible to receive Child Care Rebate (CCR) as well. You can also elect to have your CCR entitlement paid either directly to your Educator or to yourself.
