There is one standard daily fee across all of Council's 11 Early Education Centres. Fees are based on a child's age. Fees will change a child moves into the next age bracket.
The 2022/23 financial year fees below are full paying fees. Please subtract any Child Care Subsidy (CCS) from these fees to determine the ‘gap’ payable. CCS is paid directly to us by the Australian Government.
Current Early Education Centre fee schedule.
Unlike private childcare providers, Council's childcare services do not make a profit. Fees are reinvested back into our centres, to fund upgrades and initiatives such as new centre playgrounds.
Child Care Subsidy
Please visit the Australia Government's Services Australia website to determine your Child Care Subsidy eligibility and how much financial assistance your family would receive.
