All families using care with Sunflower Family Day Care must first enrol with Five Star Family Day Care (www.maitlandfdc.com.au). While children do cope better with at least two days care per week, I am happy to accept children/families wanting to use just one day per week.
All families and children have individual booked days and hours as agreed and signed upon by both myself and parent/guardian and fees are calculated on these hours, I offer several choices when booking hours for your child/ren.
- Minimum booking of 5 hours per day per child (available from 7.30am)
- Booking of 9.15am-2.15pm
Due to school drop off/pick up times, bookings can not start/finish at 8.30-9am or 2.30-3.30pm
There may be some flexibility in hours depending on my personal circumstances, please ask if you require an earlier start or later finish.
I can calculate a fee estimate for you if you know what your CCS (Child Care Subsidy) percentage rate and activity hours are. There is also a scheme fee charged on top of my hourly rate which is a payment to the scheme and helps to cover running costs for the scheme.
No fees are payable if my service is closed due to educator holidays or illness by myself or one of my family members. Fees are payable if the child is absent for any reason. Care is NOT available on public holidays and no fees will be charged if your booked day falls on a public holiday.
