Enrolment, fees and administration

A payment of $105.50 is required to secure your child’s position at Borilla Kindergarten. This is made up of a $100.00 enrolment bond and a $5.50 membership fee. The $100.00 will be forfeited if your child does not attend Borilla.  Please note the $100 enrolment bond is not applicable to families of children with Health Care Cards or families who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and/or Australian South Sea Islander.   The enrolment bond will be refunded to families and will be taken off the fees in Terms 3 & 4. Families who leave the centre prior to Term 4 will be eligible for the refund as long as they have provided the centre with four weeks’ written notice of intent to leave. No refund is available to families who leave the service prior to this period or whose account is in debit.

Enrolment of Twins

The first twin is charged at full fees and given the opportunity for 5% discount on early payment of fees. The second twin is given a 10% fee discount with no early payment discount.

Giving Notice

Parents are required to give ‘four weeks’ notice in writing to the director or administration if it is their intention to leave the centre.

Payment of kindergarten fees

Fees must be paid in full each term to ensure continuing enrolment to the next term.

The accounts will be issued at the beginning of each term with a due date so that families can budget accordingly. A discount will be given for early payments. Suncorp Easy Pay Direct Debit is available if you wish to use this service. Term 4 fees will be sent out in mid Term 3 to ensure all term 4 fees are paid prior to the end of the year. Fee payments are required within the stated timeframe. Failure to make fee payments in accordance with the due dates could result in loss of your child’s place in the centre.

Whilst a term account may seem a considerable amount, if fees are calculated on an hourly basis, as in child care centres, family day care or other child care situations, it will be seen that kindergarten fees are the cheapest of all types of care and have the most qualified staff to provide a stimulating and educational program for your child. If you are the holder of a Health Care Card a further discount applies.

When calculating fees the budget is taken into account. By working to a budget the kindergarten is able to provide a quality educational setting which is able to purchase new equipment for your child as well as meet the day to day running costs of the kindergarten.
