Please Note: 1) This fee schedule is effective from 1 January 2017. 2) Fees are inclusive of GST and may be subject to change. 3) A whānau discount is offered to under 3's if more than one tamaiti from the whānau attends. 4) Meals are not included in these fees.


Part-time Care Options: We have a limited number of part-time spaces available. Please speak to the kaiwhakahaere (centre manager) to discuss part-time options. We do not have an option for session care. The daily fees apply whatever the hours of attendance.


Fee Payment: Once your tamaiti is enrolled you will receive a monthly statement. Fees are to be paid two weeks in advance. We prefer whānau to pay by automatic payment. We appreciate prompt payment.


WINZ: You may be eligible for a WINZ subsidy for part of your fees. Forms are available from your nearest WINZ office or can be downloaded from their website. Arrangements to receive subsidies are made through WINZ. Whānau are liable for the full cost of the fees until the WINZ subsidy has been approved. Once WINZ subsidy payments have been received they will be shown as a credit on your weekly account.
