We are often asked how do I make payments? What are the fees? What is 20 hours ECE and how does this effect how much I am charged?

Below you’ll find out how to pay for your child’s fees, information about work & family income, our fee structure along with our bank account details.


  • Fees are required to be paid by Automatic Payment, Eftpos or cash.
  • Please set this up when starting as no invoices are issued. 
  • Statements will be issued on request or to those parents who are in arrears or who have had changes to their booking. 
  • If you have any questions re payment please see Teresa in the office. She is more than happy to help. 
  • Any families that receive WINZ payments need to know that WINZ subsidies are paid at least one week in arrears directly to the Centre. 
  • Fees must be paid for every day that your child is enrolled, including any day your child is enrolled to attend but is absent. 
  • This includes all statutory holidays that fall on a day when your child would normally attend the Centre and days that your child is sick or injured. 
  • Fees are subject to change and may be increased when necessary at the discretion of the Centre – at least 3 month’s notification will be given.

Work & Family

Some families will be eligible for subsidies from WINZ. We have forms for you that we can fill out on your behalf once you have enrolled to start at the Centre. You will then be required to set up the meeting with WINZ to be granted a subsidy. WINZ make payments directly to the Centre which will show on your statement (these are 2 weeks in arrears). The Centre will notify WINZ if your child turns 3 and is taking up the ECE hours or if your child leaves the Centre. All other communication regarding changes need to be directed to WINZ from the family.


The Centre is a provider of 20 hours ECE Early Childhood Education for three, four, and five year old children.

Eligibility for 20 hours ECE begins on the child’s third birthday and ends on the child’s sixth birthday. 20hours ECE is available for up to six hours per day for a maximum of 20 hours per week.

Spotted Frog is open from 8:15am - 4:00pm. 

The fees charged will only be for the hours not covered by the provision of 20 hours ECE.

Hours requested by the parent for 20hours ECE forms part of the Enrolment Form. Parents will be given a form to sign for ECE hours if your child turns 3 while attending and fees will change in accordance to this.
