Notes – OUCA fees


The notes below apply to both the current and old fees schedules outlined on this page.

  • A "Late pick up" fee is charged if children are not collected on time (at the Manager's discretion).
  • Annual OUCA Membership fee charged when enrolment starts and thereafter in March – $10 per family.
  • Full fees are charged on statutory holidays if they  fall on an enrolled day.
    (Note: 50 per cent holiday discount does not apply to statutory holidays). Parents of children enrolled part-week may arrange to use paid statutory holidays on another date within 2 months if space is available.
  • All absences due to sickness will incur full fees unless other arrangements are made with the office in cases of serious illness.
  • Four weeks' advance notice is required when a child is finishing at the centre.
  • Provided at least 2 weeks' notice is given, a 50 per cent fees discount is given for leave of up to 3 consecutive weeks. After 3 weeks absence fees will be charged if the place is to be held.
  • Where personal circumstances are difficult or complex, the Manager has the discretion to modify fees or requirements as necessary.
  • The Childcare Subsidy from Work and Income New Zealand (WINZ) is available.
  • As part of our enrolment process  a deposit of $250 is required on acceptance of a place for your child at a centre. The deposit will be forfeited if the enrolment is cancelled between the time you sign the agreement to accept the place offered and 1 month after your child's start date at a centre. If the enrolment proceeds then the deposit will be credited to your child's fees account.
  • We expect to be paid monthly. If you cannot pay, please speak to the Manager as soon as possible. If an outstanding debt is not addressed a child's enrolment maybe cancelled. We will pursue outstanding debts to the Court if necessary. The cost of recovering the debt will be charged to the debtor.
