Early Learning Centre


Example:

Your child attends an Early Learning Centre (ELC). The hours for the Early Learning Centre are 8.10am-3.10pm at $120, with After School Care at $20 from 3.10pm to 6pm. The Centre also runs Vacation Care during the School Holidays that runs from 8am-6pm for $100 per day.

Your child attends the ELC and After School Care 5 sessions per week for 40 weeks per year. In addition your child attends Vacation Care 5 sessions per week for 10 weeks per year in the same centre.

How to Fill in the Information:

The Sessions per week are all same across different care types so you only need to convert the session fees and session hours to the average over 50 weeks.

The ELC part is simple as it is Centre Based Long Day Care:

    The Session Hours = (7hrs X 40weeks) / 50weeks = 5.6hrs per session

    The Session Fees = ($120 X 40weeks) / 50weeks = $96 per session

The tricky part is the after school care and Vacation Care as both are Outside School Hours Care:

    The Session Hours = (3hrs X 40weeks + 10hrs X 10weeks) / 50weeks = 4.4hrs per session

    The Session Fees = ($20 X 40weeks + $100 X 10weeks) / 50weeks = $36 per session

Then you enter your numbers into the calculator as shown below:
