SPLASH Centre is a community run organisation that relies on the prompt payment of fees to ensure ongoing care for students of Ashbury Public and St Francis Xavier’s Primary Schools. SPLASH Centre is a noncash business and the Management Committee has nominated two payment methods; EFT transfer or Ezidebit direct debit.
- Splash uses a direct debit system operated by Ezidebit (underwritten by Westpac Bank).
- Fees are charged two weeks in arrears. The Centre does not charge a fee for using this service.
- The only alternative to this system is payment of fees a whole term in advance by EFT.
- Families attending the service on a casual basis can pay fees also by EFT.
- Your child/children first weeks of fees must be paid in full as a deposit and any reductions in fees will be calculated during the next payment cycle and a credit will be applied to your account.
Parents will be advised of the total amount of fees due at the beginning of each term. Statements will be issued every two weeks of childcare usage.
Statements are issued electronically, so please ensure you provide the service with an operating email address.
If fees are not kept up to date, your child may lose their place at Splash.
Parents who are unable to pay their fees for whatever the reason, should approach the Centre Director to discuss options for resolving fee payment.

If a casual booking is required parents/guardians need to call the SPLASH office and request the care required. Casual bookings will be subject to the availability of places. Casual bookings must be paid in advance of the care being provided. The cost is higher than a permanent booking to reflect the additional administration associated with casual bookings.
Late collection charge
Parents arriving late to collect their children, arriving after closing time of 6pm, will incur a late collection charge. SPLASH Centre Manager or Certified Supervisor on duty will ring 1194 to ascertain the exact time an adult arrives to collect a child from care.
The late collection fee will be calculated at $1.00 PER MINUTE PER CHILD FOR EACH MINUTE PAST 6PM.
Late fees will be added to your fortnight statement.
Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate
Parents wishing to claim Child Care Benefit (CCB) in order to reduce childcare fees, or be eligible for the Child Care Rebate (CCR), information must be provided on the enrolment form at time of enrolment.
This information must include child and parent dates of birth and Family Assistance Office (FAO) Customer Reference Numbers (CRN).
