School's Out Before & After School Care

Schools Out Before & After School Care

Schools Out has been operating in the Queanbeyan area for just under 10 years. We have become an integral part of the community and have looked after hundreds of families over the years. Our philosophy is to offer both a quality and rewarding childcare experience for all children in the school community. We strongly promote respect, tolerance, sportsmanship, social and personal development, positive friendships and of course fun! We warmly welcome any new families in our schools to join in our before and after school care program.

Ezidebit - Payments are required fortnightly or two weeks in arrears (processed on Thursday). Payments are made by Ezidebit.  The amount that is to be paid is calculated based on any outstanding payments at the time of the payment run.  Parents are sent an invoice on the Monday prior to the Ezidebit processing day which indicates what is owing as of the Monday, this gives time to query the amount.  The invoice is automatically generated from the School's Out Child Care Management System (Kids Wizz) which is linked to the governments Child Care Management System.

The amount that is charged on the payment date is the 'gap' amount (what is left after the Childcare Benefit (CCB) and Childcare Rebate (CCR) has been taken into account) detailed on the invoice.  If you are still waiting for your CRN and or your CCB/CCR claim to be processed by Centrelink, full fees must be paid until the CRN has been issued and Centrelink has advised the service at which time our account will be backdated with the CCB (where possible).

Alternative Payment Method (Term in Advance) - We encourage all parents to use the Ezidebit process.  However, if you do not wish to use this method the other alternate is to pay a term in advance.  If you wish to use the alternate method you will need to contact head office to arrange. 

Child Care Benefit and Rebate (CCB and CCR) :

All families that attend are eligible for significant reductions through the government childcare benefit and rebate schemes. Our services have been approved for Childcare Benefit and Childcare Rebate so you may be eligible for a reduction on these fees.

Note there is no income test for Childcare Rebate with 50% of your out-of-pocket childcare costs met by the Australian Government.

Click here for more information on Childcare Benefit and Childcare Rebate.

To claim these benefits register with Centrelink and give us your customer reference number and dates of birth for yourself and child/ren on the enrolment form and we will enter this on our system. The reduction in fees cannot be given until the childcare percentage is provided to us by Centrelink.
