CatholicCare Children Services is a not for profit, self-funded service. This sheet [link] shows our full fees prior to you claiming any eligible assistance. Because our services are approved by the Commonwealth Government all parents and guardians no matter what their income level, are able to reduce the full fee by their Childcare Subsidy.

There is a once-off enrolment fee of $15 per family
