Child care Benefit (CCB)
The child care benefit is a form of government fee assistance that is available to families who are Australian Residents.
To claim the CCB discount please supply your CRN's (Customer Reference Number) when you enroll your child.
There is a separate CRN for parents and each individual child.
If you don't know your CRN's or are unsure if you are eligible for the discount please call the Family Assistance Office (FAO) on 136 150.
Once you have provided the CRN's your fee reduction will be included on your weekly invoices. Parents can also view an online statement that show child's attendance and reduced fee information via the 'View Child care Statement' link at: www.familyassist.gov.au
Methods of Payment
Families can choose between a weekly or fortnightly cycle of direct debit payment.
The staff at Bondi Before and After Care is comprised of a Centre Director and a team of permanent and casual child care workers. All staff have a working with children check. As per regulations the carer ratio does not exceed 1 to 15 children. An additional carer is allocated for children with special needs.
Bondi Before and After School Care is a non-profit organisation which relies on fundraising activities, donations and the voluntary group of parents and school staff representatives, who oversee the running of the centre.
The committee meets in the 3rd week of each term. All new parents and carers are welcome to attend to share your fundraising ideas or offer any suggestions.
Nutritious organic breakfast and afternoon tea is provided at all sessions following the Australian Dietary Guidelines for children. Please inform staff of any allergies or food requirements your child may have.
Children are provided with a variety of planned and spontaneous activities in our arts and craft, playroom and outdoor environments (please see our weekly program of activities). Children are also encouraged to complete their homework together at After School Care.
