Fees policy 

  • Fees: Our fees allow for a high ratio of qualified teachers to children, specialist teachers with expertise in our core curriculum areas, up-to-date IT resources and fun, educational events including guest presenters and artistic groups. 
  • Attendance: If your child does not attend a session that they have been booked for, full payment is still required as their place has been reserved.
  • Holidays: Full fees are charged for any holidays (including statutory), sick days and absences.
  • Fee/optional charge review: Every year the centre charges are reviewed.
  • Late fee: A late fee of $10.00 will be charged if you drop off or collect your child outside of their booked sessions.
  • Resignation: Two weeks notice is required on resignation.

Love the values and beliefs of Lumsden. Children learn leadership and other life skills through play.

Maggie, Rakelle and the Lumsden team provide the highest quality of childhood care available. At Lumsden your child is not just another number, they are treated as the special little individual they are and with respect and kindness at all times.
