Worried about the costs of child care?
We can reduce your costs with our cost of care plan as well as government subsidies
At Kate’s Place Middle Ridge, we want to make sure that your child receives the best and most professional level of care without having to leave a dent in your finances. To accommodate this, we have come up with our cost of care plan.
Our cost of care plan depends on your Child Care Supplement. Your percentage is calculated by Centrelink on your gross family income. If you haven't yet been assessed, please ring Centrelink and they will advise you of your CCS%.
We charge you the difference between our fee and the CCS. Please contact our office 9.00 am - 5.00 pm on 07 4632 8006 Monday to Friday for further information about our fees.
At Kate's Place we do not charge enrolment fees (bond & rego ), so the enroling is free for all.
Please note: Although fees for school age children are the same as for 2½- 5 year olds, the actual cost to the parent is greater as the Child Care Supplement is lower.
The Australian Government has also created a subsidy program to lower the expense of child care. To learn more, visit our Government Subsidies page.
