Fees and Payment
Coogee Care is a family-run, not-for-profit service, and fees are kept as low as possible while ensuring excellent education and care.
A flat fee is charged per session of Before School, After School and Vacation Care.
Our fees from 29 January 2020 are:
Before School Care (Permanent and Casual): $12
After School Care (Permanent and Casual): $20
Vacation Care (including incursions and Excursions): $52
Administration Fee: NIL
There is an annual membership fee of $10 per family per calendar year, payable at the time of enrolment.
A permanent place is one that has been allocated to a child for a twelve-month period, excluding vacation care. Two weeks’ notice is required for changes or cancellations.
Casual places can be requested by email. If we are fully booked at the time of request, you will be put on a waitlist and notified if a place becomes available. Note that Coogee Care has very limited casual places.
*Un-notified Absence: If children are not attending a booked afternoon session, you must notify the centre by 2.30pm on the day of attendance. Failure to do this means we treat your child as 'missing' and results in an un-notified fee of $10 on your account. Notifying the school does not constitute notification to the centre. For Before School and Vacation Care, we appreciate email notification of absences but the session fee still applies.
Late Fee: The Centre closes at 6:00pm. A late fee of $20 per 10 minute block is charged for children who are collected after 6:00pm. Late fees are calculated on the spot & are determined by the time the child is signed out.
Statements are emailed on Mondays, fortnightly. Payment is required in full within 7 days of the statement being issued. Failure to pay due fees within 14 days may result in the cancellation of care.
Direct Debit is our preferred method of payment. You can get the process started by completing this form, printing it and returning it to us. These forms are also available from the centre. Direct Debits are processed every fortnight on the Thursday of statement week.
Alternatively, payment can be made by EFTPOS (in centre) or Direct Deposit:
