Early Learning Centre


Example:

Your child attends an Early Learning Centre (ELC). The hours for the Early Learning Centre are 8.10am-3.10pm at $120, with After School Care at $20 from 3.10pm to 6pm. The Centre also runs Vacation Care during the School Holidays that runs from 8am-6pm for $100 per day.

Your child attends the ELC and After School Care 5 sessions per week for 40 weeks per year. In addition your child attends Vacation Care 5 sessions per week for 10 weeks per year in the same centre.

How to Fill in the Inforamtion:

The Sessions per week are all same across different care types so you only need to convert the session fees and session hours to the average over 50 weeks.

The ELC part is simple as it is Centre Based Long Day Care:

    The Session Hours = (7hrs X 40weeks) / 50weeks = 5.6hrs per session

    The Session Fees = ($120 X 40weeks) / 50weeks = $96 per session

The tricky part is the after school care and Vacation Care as both are Outside School Hours Care:

    The Session Hours = (3hrs X 40weeks + 10hrs X 10weeks) / 50weeks = 4.4hrs per session

    The Session Fees = ($20 X 40weeks + $100 X 10weeks) / 50weeks = $36 per session

    The Session Hours = 10hrs per session

    The Session Fees = $120 per session

For the Family Day Care:

    The Session Hours = 10hrs per session

After School Care + Vacation Care


Example:

Your child attends both After School Care and Vacation Care (both are Outside School Hours Care):

    (1) in the After School Care 4 sessions (3 hours per session) per week at $30 per session for 40 weeks per year;

    (2) and in the Vacation Care 5 sessions (10 hours per session) per week at $90 per session for 10 weeks per year.

How to Fill in the Inforamtion:

For the After School Care, you need to convert the numbers to 5sessions per week (same as the Vacation Care):

    The Sessions = 5sessions per week

    The Session Hours = (3hrs X 4sessions) / 5sessions = 2.4hrs per session

    The Session Fees = ($30 X 4sessions) / 5sessions = $24 per session

    Weeks per Year = 40weeks

For the Vacation Care, you need to convert the numbers to 40 weeks (same as the After School Care):

    The Sessions = 5sessions per week

    The Session Hours = (10hrs X 10weeks) / 40weeks = 2.5hrs per session

    The Session Fees = ($90 X 10weeks) / 40weeks = $22.5 per session

    Weeks per Year = 40weeks

Then you enter your numbers into the calculator as shown below:

    The Sessions = 5sessions

    The Session Hours = 2.4hrs per session + 2.5hrs per session = 4.9hrs per session

    The Session Fees = $24 per session + $22.5 per session = $46.5 per session

    Weeks per Year = 40weeks

Make sure you change the Centre Based Long Day Care Session (Daily) Hours & Family Day Care Session (Daily) Hours to 0!
