You may be eligible for fee assistance from the Government. The most common sources are CCB and CCR.

CCB is the Childcare Benefit and is means tested. It is paid directly to the centre on your behalf which reduces your weekly childcare expenses. To be eligible for this, you will need to register your child(ren) at Centrelink for CCB.

CCR is the Childcare Rebate and is funding which covers up to 50% of your out of pocket expenses (i.e. your gap fee) up to a certain threshold. There are certain criteria for CCR and will need to be applied for through Centrelink. If eligible, you will have the option to receive the rebate yourself or have it come directly to the centre and off your weekly fees. Again this will need to be done through Centrelink.

For more info on these and other forms of assistance, please contact Centrelink using any of the details below.

Once a family enrols at the Merino Court Childcare Centre, we can directly link up to centrelink. If you are entitled to CCB, then our fees will automatically deduct your CCB and your account will display a gap fee, which is your portion of the fees.

Merino Court Childcare Centre's accounts are produced fortnightly and payment due within 14 days.

Fee payment options for Merino Court Childcare Centre are:

  • Direct Debit

    • Merino Court Childcare Centre uses a Direct Debit system for collection of fees.
    • Direct debit is set up on enrolment and is included in the enrolment form. 
    • Families are to nominate their desired account and sign the authority.
    • All fees associated with Direct Debit are passed on to the family.
    • Nominated accounts will only be debited the amount owing on the selected date.  This is not a set amount and will reflect usage over the nominated period.
