YMCA South Australia in partnership with the School Council sets the daily fee on an annual basis. Once a child is enrolled, families and carers can contact Family Assistance with the service’s provider number to determine their eligibility for the Child Care Subsidy. This is used to determine a families discounted fee, usually between 50-85%. As a guide 95% of OSHC families receive 50% or more subsidy off the standard rate.
|Before School Care||19.50||$3.10 - $9.50 after subsidy|
After School Care
|$4.90 - $13.70|
|$11.60 - $32.20|

|Casual Booking Fee||$3.00|
|Hat Fee (once off)||$12.00|
All fees are paid via direct debit. A direct debit authorisation must be completed prior to using the service. Direct debit is paid via a bank account or credit card. Paying by credit card incurs a .79% surcharge.
A $3 casual surcharge is applied for before/after school care bookings made within 48 hours of care being provided. The $3 casual surcharge is applied to Vacation Care bookings made within 2 weeks of the school holidays (start of the Vacation Care program).
A live statement is available to view via your Xplor Home app/web. A new week is added to the statement every Monday.
