Headstart Fee Structure


Parents who are eligible for the Federal Government’s Child Care Assistance subsidy will only be required to pay the daily gap fee applicable to their financial circumstances. Fees can be from less than $6.00 per day depending on the level of  Child Care Assistance you may receive.


Fees must be paid one week in advance.
Accounts in arrears over four weeks may result in cancellation of your booking.

All Headstart Childcare Centre's are registered for the Commonwealth Government Child Care Benefit scheme, to help reduce your weekly fees.



  Childcare Benefit information you need to understand.
The Family Assistance Office (FAO) is a joint venture between Centrelink, The Australian Tax Office and the Health Insurance Commission (Medicare).  The FAO administers the Child Care Benefit (CCB) system on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Family and Community Service.

Child Care Benefit has replaced both the Commonwealth Childcare Assistance and Medicare Cash Rebate for every family regardless of their income means test.  Every Australian family will be entitled to and will get either fee reduction or tax return adjustment on the Child Care usage when your child attends any Headstart Childcare centre.

Under the Child Care Benefit system, families have certain responsibilities to fulfil.  All families using Headstart must contact the Family Assistance Office regardless of the family taxable income.  Families should submit to the Family Assistance Office the required information preferable before enrolment at Headstart.  The Family Assistance Office will inform both the family and Headstart with the family eligibility percentage of assistance for each child.

Each family using Headstart must have a Customer Reference Number (CRN).
