Copy of Birth Certificate
Copy of Immunisation Register
Confirmation of child’s Centrelink CRN
Copy of parents driver’s license
Action plan for asthma, anaphylaxis and/or allergic reaction if applicable

Is there a minimum number of days required for enrolment?

No, however we recommend a minimum of 2 days as we believe your child will benefit from building strong trusting relationships with their educators and peers and settle in more quickly the more frequently they attend.

Am I able to claim the Government rebates if I enrol with Circle Early learning?

Yes, to aid in the payment of childcare fees, the Department of Human Services has provided access to Child Care Subsidy (CCS) for eligible families. Parents, please note it is your responsibility to apply for the CCS with the Family Assistance Office on 136 150. Once CCS is approved, you will need to provide the Centre with your Customer Reference Number (CRN) and date of birth (DOB) along with your child’s CRN and DOB so a formal enrolment can be made. Your subsidy will then be subtracted from the full fees owing, leaving a gap fee which is the amount families pay to the Centre, meaning less out of pocket expense.

How do I pay my weekly fees?

All fees are to be paid via direct debit weekly. At enrolment we will supply you with a direct debit form and you can elect to pay your weekly fees by credit card or direct debit . You can change your billing details at any time by notifying the Director. The initial amount will include an advance payment of one week’s full fee. We understand that this may be a new process for some families however I am certain that you will appreciate the convenience of automatic payments.

Do I have to pay for public holidays?

Yes you will have to pay for public holidays because we have everyday costs that take place including educators wages that still need to be paid whether we are open or not.

Why do my fees sometimes fluctuate from week to week?

Due to the data we receive from Centrelink and the Department of Human Services sometimes amounts fluctuate in regards to your Child Care Subsidy dependent on your eligibility, which we unfortunately have no control over. We are always happy to answer your questions as best as we can.

Clients’ Testimonials

Just wanted to thank you guys for the great work you put in with Dennis last year. The development over the 12 months is outstanding & has really prepared him to go into the big room up here.
Just wanted to let you know that Dennis has settled into his new preschool very well including fully toilet trained YAY ?.
There were a few tears at the start of the year from both Dennis & I, has we missed the wonderful staff at ELC. Thankfully am happy to report he is making great friendships with his new teachers & peers, however every now & again he still looks for Miss Brittany.
Hope all is well, Keep up the fabulous work!
