Gamumbi Early Childhood Education Centre


playing at gamumbiGamumbi Early Childhood Education Centre is an approved service and offers fee subsidies to eligible parents through the Federal Governments Child Care Subsidy System.

Our daily fees vary depending on Child Care Subsidy (CCS) entitlements.  As of 1 January 2019 our fees range from:

  • $93.50 for children enrolled in our 0-2’s (Miindala) room.
  • $90.00 for children enrolled in our 2-3’s (Jaliigirr) room.
  • $89.00 for children enrolled in our 3-6’s (Dunggiirr) room.

A  holding deposit of $60 per family is payable on enrolment to secure your place, along with an annual Educational fee of $60 per family.

These fees provide your child with an educational and care program delivered by qualified and experienced staff, as well as home cooked meals, nappies, Cancer Council SPF 30+ sunscreen and bucket hats.

When you enquire about care, you will be placed on our waiting list and will be contacted if a place becomes available. It is important for families to contact Gamumbi twice a year to ensure that their place on the waiting list remains current. If you do not accept an offer for enrolment made to you, your application will be returned to the list in its original position.

Re-enrolment is conducted each year in September.  All existing families are required to re-enrol each year to confirm their place at the Centre. During this process, we determine what vacancies will be available and contact families from the waiting list following our Priority of Access Guidelines.
