20 HOURS ECE is a government initiative available to all children aged 3 to 6 years. We have incorporated the 20 Hours ECE scheme into our Fees Structure enabling us to offer competitive rates for 2 to 6 year olds. Parents must complete the attestation form on, or prior to, the date of entitlement to receive this.

WORK AND INCOME
A child care subsidy is available for eligible families on application to Work and Income (WINZ). Even if you are eligible for a WINZ subsidy it remains your responsibility to ensure your account is paid in full at all times. It is your responsibility to keep WINZ informed of any changes in circumstances or care arrangements and to ensure WINZ are fully informed of any ECE hours you are currently receiving. Families receiving 20 hours ECE may be eligible for a child care subsidy for additional hours depending on their circumstances. You will need to apply directly to WINZ.

ENROLMENT FEE of $50.00 is payable on enrolment to secure your child's booking and place on the waiting list.

In order to receive this discount accounts must be maintained and paid in full. Once a child is absent for 21 consecutive days (including weekends) we lose funding. For absences longer than these, to maintain your child's space at Jenz you will be charged the equivalent of lost fundng in addition to your normal fees, which could be up to $100 per day.
