The fees are set by the Management Committee. For 2018 the fees are:

$43 per day for children turning 4 by 31st July in the year of attendance.

$53 per day for children turning 4 after 31st July.  Note: Effective 1 January 2019, The NSW State Government will also fund 3 year olds (those turning 4 after 31st July), but only at 25% of the funding received for 4 year olds, increasing to 50% in 2022.

$10 per day for children from ATSI background, or families who hold a Low Income Health Care Card or pension card. The amount per day from 2018 for these families will depending on the amount of increased funding we receive, which is yet to be confirmed.

More details about these fees are explained below:-

Fees for 2018 are $43 per day for ‘eligible’ children.  CPCK receives some funding from Department of Education for ‘eligible’ children i.e. those children eligible to attend school the following year.

Our funding agreement with the Department of Education requires us to firstly offer spots to those children eligible to go to school the following year. If vacancies remain after all 4 year old children have been offered a position at our kindergarten, positions will then be offered to 3 year old children but with a higher fee of $53 per day for children turning 4 after 31st July who are not from families with a Low Income Health Care Card, Pension Card or who are not from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background.  Note: Effective 1 January 2019, The NSW State Government will also fund 3 year olds,  but only at 25% of the funding received for 4 year olds, increasing to 50% in 2022.

We also receive additional funding for children whose family holds a Low Income Health Care Card, Pension Card or whose heritage is from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background.  Fees for these families are $10 per day.

As increasing administrative time and resources are being used in chasing late payers we offer a $2 per day discount  for families who pay the fees by the close date for each installment. The close dates and fee amounts will be outlined on the fees notice and we ask that families assist us to reduce administration time and save money at the same time by paying by the early-bird close date.

The NSW state government currently only provides funds for 4 year old children in the year before starting school and 3 year old children from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family or for 3 year old children from a family who holds a Health Care Card. This applies only to registered community based preschools and kindergartens in NSW.  Note: Effective 1 January 2019, The NSW State Government will also fund 3 year olds,  but only at 25% of the funding received for 4 year olds, increasing to 50% in 2022.

(4 yr old children means those children turning 4 by 31st July in the year of attendance.  3 yr old children means those children turning 4 after 31st July but before 31st December in the year of attendance).

A deposit of $500 is paid the year prior to a child starting at the pre-school. This is refunded at the end of the year and counts towards term 4 fees. If a child leaves prior to the end of the year, a minimum of 4 weeks’ notice in writing is required before the deposit is refunded. If your child stays for 2 years, then the deposit is held until the end of their final year at kindy.

Fees are paid by the term either in full or in 2 instalments and can be paid by the following methods:

1. Internet Banking

2. Cheque

3. Cash

4. EFTPOS, Credit/Debit Card.

Fee Relief

CPCK receives some funding from Department of Education for ‘eligible’ children i.e. those children eligible to attend school the following year.

We also receive additional funding for children whose family holds a Low Income Health Care Card, Pension Card or whose heritage is from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background.  Subsidies are available for these families as outlined above.

Child Care Subsidy

CPCK is a preschool and is funded by the NSW State Government. Families attending a preschool such as our service cannot claim any Childcare Subsidy.  The Childcare Subsidy is only available for families using an approved service such as Long Day Care facilities who are federally funded.

Collaroy Plateau Community Kindergarten recognises the importance of acknowledging the history of the Indigenous Australians who belong to the Guringai language group who lived and are living in the Warringah area.

We acknowledge and respect the values and customs of the traditional owners of this land. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future for they hold the memories, traditions, culture and hope of Indigenous Australians. Aboriginal people have lived here for thousands of years, raising and teaching their children. We extend our hand in friendship as we walk together on this land.
