Payment Of Fees

When parents enrol for childcare a fee agreement is signed. Parents are required to pay a bond for each child equivalent to the parents' contribution of 2 weeks fees, once a care pattern is established. Payment of fees will be one (1) week in arrears. Casual/emergency care is to be paid for in full at the time of care.

Childcare accounts are issued on a weekly basis to parents via email, post or their child's information pockets. Our terms are "7 days". Overdue accounts of 28 days+ will incur a fee of $12 per week.

Preschool fees are generated weekly and distributed via email or the child's information pocket.

Payments may be made either in cash or cheque made payable to:

Kangaroo Island Children's Services Inc.

Payments may be made by putting fees due in a named envelope and placing in the payment box provided. Receipts will be issued for all fees paid. We do not provide change and do not have credit card facilities.
