PUTTING YOUR CHILD ON THE WAITING LIST
If you are reading this information from our website, you will be able to download an Enrolment Form from this site. Please complete as many details as possible, and send the form in for filing in the appropriate year’s waiting list. We will date the form with the date we receive it. Alternatively, you are most welcome to visit and give us the form personally.
Parents will be required to fill in our enrolment form. The information requested is necessary, and is held in strict confidence between the family and the staff. Please ask for the Family Assistance Office Full Fee Paying form to complete with your enrolment. It is a DEC requirement that parents are required to complete a re-enrolment form annually.
A Registration fee of $100 is payable with lodgement of your child’s completed enrolment form. A copy of your child’s immunisation certificate or Blue Book and your child’s Birth Certificate or Passport must accompany the enrolment form. Should your child be enrolled for the start of a new year, and you do not wish to continue with the enrolment, we ask that you give us written notice before mid-November, so as to give another child the opportunity of a place with us.
Fees for 2017 are $110 per day. Gingerbread is licensed as a long day care centre. We operate Monday to Friday (with the exception of public holidays) 48 weeks of the year (closed for 4 weeks over the Christmas period) 8.30am-5.30pm. Fees remain payable due to family holidays taken throughout the year as well as sickness and public holidays. There is a late fee of $2 per minute after 5.30pm.
No charge is made for the four weeks that the centre is closed during Summer School holidays. Fees are payable if your child is absent due to illness, vacation, or other reasons.
