Additional Information for Cancelling Vacation Care

Costs for Vacation Care vary depending on the planned activities of the center, as outlined in the Vacation Care program.

Cancellations of bookings 10 business days’ notice or earlier will not incur a cancellation fee. If cancelled after this time (or not at all), full session fee will be charged. A late collection fee of $15 per 15 minutes intervals/or part thereof will apply for collections which occur after 6:00pm. As per the Fees Policy, full payment of outstanding fees are required weekly. Accounts which are more than 30 days overdue will incur an Administration fee of $20.00 per month until payment is made. Overdue fees may result in future bookings being cancelled. To avoid late fees please contact the service to arrange payment, or to discuss a payment plan as soon as possible.

Payment of Fees and Outstanding Fees

It is IASC’s aim to provide a quality service to families at an affordable price. The Management Committee will set fees based on the annual budget required for the provision of quality child care that is in keeping with our philosophy, goals and policies and procedures. Generally, fees are reviewed in March each year. Parents/guardians will be notified of any changes via the sign in desk (Junior Room and School Hall).

Accounts are issued weekly (preferably to your registered email address) on Wednesdays with payment due no later than the following Tuesday. Each weekly account will show the amount incurred for the prior week (Monday to Friday) with any outstanding amount from prior periods included as “Amount Outstanding”. Thus you will need to refer to prior invoices to identify where any outstanding amounts were incurred.

Payment can be made directly to the IASC office, by credit card, cheque, cash or using our Bpay or Ezidebit facility.

We recommend for regular hours, that you set up a recurring electronic payment through your bank account and make adjustments as needed.

Amounts outstanding after 30 days may incur a $20 administration fee each month that the amount remains outstanding.

IASC may appoint a debt collection agency to recover monies outstanding over 30 days. If you are having difficulties making payment, contact the Coordinator as soon as possible to discuss, confidentiality is assured.
