Casual Rate

We accept children on a casual basis at a rate of $5 per hour.


WINZ subsidies may be available for children under three. You can collect a Subsidies Application Form from the Centre or at your local Work and Income Department. If you require assistance to complete the form, we are more than happy to help. You are welcome to visit at any time, or ring Debbie for an appointment.


Fees are payable two weeks in advance on booked times; the first payment is required on receipt of your enrolment form. We expect to be paid on time. If you cannot pay please speak to the Head Teacher as soon as possible so as not to fall into arrears.

Ministry of Education funding

We have a duty to maintain accurate records as to the uses of this money since we are licensed by the Ministry of Education and receive funding from them. The amounts and details of all expenditure of Ministry funding will be tabled at the Taieri Christian Schools Association Incorporated Annual General Meeting (held March each year). Copies can be accessed at the office.
