Enrolment and fees

To enrol your child please download the Wait List Application 2017, and return the completed form by post. We will enter your child’s name on the waiting list as soon as we receive the completed form.

Once your child’s name is on the waiting list, you will receive an invitation to some functions and your child will be offered a place when one becomes available.

In the meantime, you may like to visit the centre, see where your child will learn and talk with staff members. If so, please call us on (07) 3371 7090.

Term fees are due prior to the commencement of each Term. Fees will be invoiced during the last week of the previous Term, with the exception of Term 1.

** Confirmation Bond  A Confirmation Bond of $500 is required to secure a place at MCH. This bond will be refundable against the final term’s fees.

ONE FULL TERM’S WRITTEN NOTICE is required for any child leaving MCH. If insufficient notice is given, the fees will be charged on a pro rata basis and deducted from the Confirmation Bond until the position is filled.

MCH is a Registered Care (not Approved Care) centre for the purpose of the Australian Government Family Assistance Office and we issue a receipt each term which people can use to claim their rebate, subject to individual eligibility. Claims can only be made by completing and lodging the relevant form (which can be found at this link) within 12 months from the date care was provided. Parents need to be working, looking for work, training or studying to get registered care (with some exemptions). Please contact the Family Assistance Office for more information.
