Refundable Fee Bond & Payment

As the Centre operates on a ‘not for profit’ basis, timely and efficient payment of fees is essential. Our Centre therefore requires a Refundable Bond of $200 to be paid in advance of care and for accounts to be paid 2 weeks in advance.

All parents are asked to read carefully our fee policy upon enrolment at the Centre. Any further enquiries can be answered by the Director.

Child Care Benefit & Rebate

Salamander Child Care has been awarded a rating of Exceeding the National Standards. Once a service is accreditated eligible families are able to apply for the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and/or Child Care Rebate (CCR).

The Australian Government introduced CCB and CCR to assist families in meeting the costs of childcare. Families may elect to have either or both payments made direct to the service to reduce their weekly fees.
