Child Care Costs, Fees and Prices | Goodstart
Fees and payments

  • Your child’s attendance is booked and charged on a daily basis. At most centres part-day care is not available.
  • An initial booking fee may be charged when your position is confirmed. This payment is only charged once and is not applicable if you transfer between Goodstart Early Learning centres.
  • Fees will apply for booked days that your child does not attend due to illness, holidays or public holidays. Goodstart Early Learning centres do not operate on public holidays.
  • Two weeks advance payment of full fees is required before your child starts and must be maintained during your child’s attendance. The only exception is if you pay via Ezidebit on a weekly cycle. Please see your Centre Director for more information.
  • If your account falls in arrears, your Centre Director will work with you to plan your payments to bring your account back to two weeks in advance.
  • There are several payment options including Ezidebit, BPAY, and Eftpos/ Credit Card, please see your Centre Director for more information.
  • We provide Statements weekly, these can also be requested at any time from your Centre Director.
