Jabiru reserves the right to change our program at our sole discretion due to unforeseen circumstances like staffing and availability.

Annual administration fee: An annual administrative fee of $25.00 per family is charged when your new enrolment is confirmed and each year when you renew your enrolment. We will process your enrolment and confirm with you in writing so you can start to use the service.

Late bookings: Late bookings are those made after Thursday 6 pm for the following week before care is needed. Late bookings will incur a $5.00 surcharge for before and after school care and vacation care on the ‘Permanent or Advance’ booking fee.
