At Gumnuts we believe in an "open door policy" welcoming our parents to be involved in all aspects of our centre. Through our orientation process we gather information from the family about their child to help with the settling in period. Parents become familiar with our service through our parent handbook and during a tour of the service. We believe that by forming a strong bond through personalised service with families and the broader community all children within our care will thrive and reach their full potential. We have additional community information and parent information located in our foyer and displayed on our community board.
Our fees are currently $88.00 per day, with all meals included and nappies supplied to our babies under one. Upon enrolment we have a $70 non refundable enrolment fee (payable in cash only) We use ezi debit as our preferred payment of weekly fees with all fees being one week in advance. Two weeks notice is required if going on holidays and we offer a holiday discount rate. Sick days and general absences are paid at the normal rate.
