All 3, 4 and 5 year olds are able to access the governments 20 hours ECE policy.
We provide set programmes for the 20 Hours with no extra fees required unless extra curricular activities/trips have been arranged. (maximum free hours cannot exceed 6 hours per day) Tinytown will provide for an allowance of an extra 8 hours over the 20 hours per week with the extra hours being charged at an hourly rate. (anything over a total of 28 hours per week is considered full time and our full time weekly fee will apply).
Full time attendance for 3, 4 and 5 year olds also have access to the 20 Hours ECE policy with a remainder weekly fee charged for the hours above 20.
20 Hours ECE cannot be transferred or carried over to another day or week, or used for any time other than that specified on your enrolment form.
You will need to complete and sign an attestation form confirming the days and hours you will claim as 20 Hours ECE. The attestation form is a legal document and forms part of your enrolment agreement with us.
If your child attends more than one eligible ECE service, you may split the hours claimed across both services, as long as: no more than 20 hours per week and six hours per day are being claimed and you don't claim the same hours twice across both services.
