Additional Fees

Overdue Accounts

All overdue accounts are subject to a $20 Overdue Account Fee which is charged monthly to each account that remains unpaid at the due date.*

Please contact our supportive staff if you would like to discuss your payment options or you are experiencing financial hardship.

Search Fee

If your child does not attend a scheduled booking and staff have not been notified that they will not attend we begin our search procedure to follow up and ensure your child’s safety. This procedure incurs a $10 fee.

Late Pickup Fees

Adventure Patch closes at 6.15pm on operating days, if you are unable to collect your child by 6.15pm there is a surcharge of $10 for each child. A further $10 is charged for every 5 minutes thereafter. Child Care Subsidy is not payable on this surcharge.

Rejection Fee (Debit Success)

A dishonour fee of $14.95 will apply for direct debit transactions where there are insufficient funds to cover the fees. This fee is managed by the Direct Debit provider. Adventure Patch does not receive this fee, and as a result is unable to refund this fee

Federal Government determined Allowable Absences

If your child is absent from a scheduled booking (this applies to any booking made, including casual bookings), 75% of the normal fee will be charged if a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice is provided in writing to Enrolments. [email protected]  If a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice is not provided, you will be charged 100% of the normal fee.

Other Fees

If Adventure Patch needs to provide your child with nappies or lunch at any time, an additional charge will be made.
