Fantails clips fees so kids can fly
Reducing fees: Fantails Childcare is helping families out in difficult economic times by reducing fees so children
can still have fun at the centre.
Amid general rising
costs for families and
cuts in government
Fantails Childcare has
taken action to help
families in the com-
munity by reducing its
fees for childcare.
We believe we can
support our parents
through these tough
economic times so we
are simplifying our fee
structure and thereby
reducing the cost of
care at the centre,
owner Jan Kiers says.
We acknowledge the
importance of quality
early childhood edu-
cation and care, with-
out compromising qual-
ity staff. These changes
to our fee structure will
help support our exist-
ing families and famil-
ies in the future.
Fantails, based 3km
from Silverdale, will
reduce its fees by as
much as $34 a week to
make things a little
easier for families.
Fantails is a fully
inclusive centre, mean-
ing it provides all food,
formula for babies,
nappies and sunscreen.
All it asks is that
children bring a sun hat
in summer and gum-
boots in winter.
