Chuckles Childcare Fees & Payments

For us to provide a viable service to all families within the community, we ask that fees are paid promptly each Friday.

Banking of fees

We are a direct debit only centre and all fees will be debited from your nominated savings account. A detailed statement will be emailed each week and within each statement, you will receive a dated receipt, which is in accordance with Commonwealth Guidelines. Fees will be processed on Friday of every week.


A $100 cash bond will be required to confirm your child’s enrolment. This will be used to cover any outstanding fees and/or the two weeks’ notice period. The bond payment is returned in full when two weeks written notice (that care is no longer required) is given and your account is up to date.

Fees are still required to be paid when your child is absent from Chuckles Childcare due to; sickness, annual leave, public holidays and personal absences.

Holiday Entitlements

After one year of continuous childcare, each child is entitled to one week’s annual leave, where fees are not charged. (Conditions apply: children can not be in attendance during this week where fees are not charged, and families can only claim one week each tax year going from 1st July to 30th June).
