Fees and Benefits

As a not-for-profit children’s charity established on promoting positive childhoods for WA families, we have chosen to make quality childcare accessible to all children as they begin their journey into kindergarten. As such, the fees and benefits associated with the early learning program are kept to a minimum to allow equal opportunities for all families.

An affordable, more personal alternative for working families in need of childcare, our Early Learning Programs have extended their session times to accommodate even more families in the community. Our passion is early learning and we do not currently offer a daycare, however by opening from 8.30am – 3.30pm, our families who are returning to work are now eligible for government fee assistance like Childcare Subsidy.

At Meerilinga Young Children’s Foundation, we do things a little differently.  For us the decision to keep the costs to our families at some of the lowest in the state is a simple one. We invest all of our time, effort and resources back into improving our services for your child and your family. Your Child’s fees go towards our efforts to further Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) outcomes in our nationally recognised Early Learning Programs, the learning environment  at each centre and of course, towards engaging inspirational early learning centre staff. See our Family Handbook for more information on fees. Also view our Policy on Fees, Charges, Refunds, Deferred Payment and Waiver Policy.
