Book a tour

We have an open door policy. You and your family are welcome to ring or contact The Cottage Child Care Centre anytime, and we can give you a guided tour of ‘The Cottage’.

Tour times

Due to COVID restrictions, we are currently only offering virtual tours.  When restrictions ease, tours can be organised between 8 am to 11 am and 2 pm to 5pm.

We do not hold tours during the hours of 11:00am and 2:00pm as this is our rest time in the centre.

Fees & Childcare subsidy

Our full fee is: $129.30 per day, before Child Care Subsidy (CCS) has been applied.

A family Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is available from Centrelink who will assess parents’ taxable income and a scale will be used to determine the amount of assistance each family will receive. Every family regardless of their income is entitled to this assistance.

Please call us with your Child Care Subsidy (CCS) percentage and number of eligible hours and we can work out your exact fee. If you don’t have a CCS percentage please call Centrelink on 13 61 50.
