Fees and Payment of Fees

An enrolment fee of $30.00 is payable at the time of enrolment. This is a one off fee and is non refundable.

Fees are to be paid a week in advance by direct debit, credit card, cash, cheque or Eftpos. Fees must be paid for every day that your child is enrolled, including any day your child is absent.

Late Payment of Fees

This may incur a 10% penalty on your account and failure to pay fees may result in a cancellation of your enrolment. If account balances remain unpaid, then all costs of debt collection will be payable by you.

20 Hours ECE

The centre is a provider of 20 hours ECE for 3-5 year old children. A child is eligible for this on their third birthday. 20 hours is available for up to six hours per day. As Learning Tree is open for 10.5 hours per day, fees will be charged for the hours not covered by the provision of 20 hour ECE.

Work and Income

If you have a WINZ subsidy you are still responsible to ensure that your account is paid in advance at all times and any part which is not covered by the subsidy. It is your responsibility to let Work and Income know of any changes to circumstances or your child’s attendance. It is your responsibility to inform Work and Income of any benefits you have through the 20 hours ECE scheme.

Collection of Children

The centre is licensed by The Ministry of Education from 7:30am-6:00pm, Monday to Friday and must close strictly at this time. Please contact the centre if unforeseen circumstances make it impossible for you to pick up your child on time.

Please note children may only leave the centre with adults listed on the enrolment form. A late pick up fee may be charged of $25.00 per 15 minutes late after the 6:00pm closing time.

Holidays and Absences

Statutory holidays are charged in full if they fall on a day when your child is booked to attend. After attending the centre for 3 months your child will be entitled to 15 days per year at 50% fees. This must be applied for in writing 2 weeks before the first day of the holiday. You need to discuss any extended absences with the centre manager.

Changes and Notice Periods

We require two weeks notice in writing if you wish to terminate or change a permanent booking. Change of timetable forms are available in reception. Please inform Work and Income of any changes made.

Keys to Developing Early Numeracy Skills in Children  

Maths skills are essential in our day to day lives, from counting and measuring, to analysing patterns and evaluating information. All children can be successful with numeracy, provided they have opportunities to explore mathematical ideas in ways that make sense to them.
