Centre Operating Days

The Centre is open Monday - Friday. We are not open on Public Holidays. The Centre will be closed for 3 weeks over Christmas/New Year.

Minimum Attendance

Each child is required to attend a minimum of twice per week.

Payments

Fees are to be paid weekly in advance. The first payment is due on the first day of attendance.

We prefer that fees are paid by internet banking or automatic payment. If you wish to make alternative payment arrangements please discuss with Centre Manager.

Account number for Electronic Payments:
Kiwibank: 38-9009-0521989-00.
Account Name: Pipis

Please use your child’s surname as reference to ensure your payment is allocated to the right account.

A 10% Penalty Surcharge will be made on all overdue accounts.

Late Fees

Pipis teachers have worked a long day and have their own families and commitments awaiting them. It causes great inconvenience if children have not left the centre by 4.30pm therefore our late policy charges are as follows.

After 4.45pm there will be an automatic $10 charge plus $2 per minute after the first ten minutes.

We require two week’s notice of a child withdrawing from the centre, if two week’s notice is not given two week’s charge will be payable in lieu.

Absences

You are entitled to 3 weeks holiday per year at 50% of your normal weekly fees. You need to advise us 1 week in advance. All other absences will be charged at the usual rate.

You will not be charged for days when the Centre is closed.

Due to Ministry of Education funding requirements, any time exceeding three consecutive weeks must be discussed with the Centre.

Childcare Subsidy

Work and income New Zealand operates a subsidy for parents whose children attend the centre. The subsidy is subject to your income level and forms are available at the centre and we are happy to assist you if required.
