Byron Bay Preschool Fees

Fees at Byron Bay Preschool range from $10 – $27 per day depending on your income level, and/or whether you identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

Both of our centre locations are Registered Care, and eligible families can receive the Centrelink childcare benefit for registered care.(https://www.humanservices.gov.au/individuals/services/centrelink/child-care-benefit) Depending on your eligibility, the refund can be claimed at Centrelink on presentation of a childcare benefit receipt. Parents or carers must request this receipt at the beginning of the term from the office administrator at Byron Bay Preschool, who will issue receipts at the end of each term once fees have been paid in full. Contact Centrelink for more information.

A non-refundable registration fee of $30 is required when you complete a waiting list form. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, the registration fee is $5.
