Fee Policy & Structure

Holy Family Early Learning Centre is a privately funded centre. We do not draw on any government funding for student places. Attendance at our Centre is based on the parent’s capacity to pay the assigned fees. We are unable to offer fee remission.

Preschool Fees are payable two weeks in advance unless the Director has authorised a different payment structure. The first account will be emailed to families in mid-January. This account (the first two weeks of preschool and preschool plus) will need to be paid before school commences in 2025. Accounts will be emailed on a fortnightly basis.

 Preschool and Preschool Plus fees are payable via direct debit using DEBIT SUCCESS. Fees will be charged during periods of absence i.e. illness or family holidays during school terms. If an account becomes more than one billing cycle in arrears (2 weeks), the family will be contacted by the Centre Director. If the account becomes more than $600.00 in arrears, the child’s attendance at the Centre will be suspended until the account is cleared. Debt collection services will be undertaken for the recovery of unpaid fees.
