2019 Pre-School Parents
Please ensure that you advise your Centre if you are a Health Care Card holder, or an Australian Government Pension Concession Card holder with automatic Health Care Card entitlements, as you may be eligible to receive a further discount on your Preschool fees. Discounted Preschool fees are applied at the beginning of each term and cannot be backdated.
A quick reminder about Immunisations!
A copy of your child’s immunisation record is required at enrolment please. This must be in the form of an official record issued by the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register or a letter from a recognised immunisation provider (e.g. a GP or immunisation nurse). As your child progresses through with their subsequent immunisation schedules, so too their updated record will need to be provided… Regrettably the “Personal Health Record” (the ‘red book’) from Queensland Health is no longer an acceptable proof of immunisation as it contains only handwritten updates.
A child must be fully immunised, on a catch up immunisation schedule or have a valid exemption at the time a parent makes their very first claim for Childcare Benefit. Please provide your valid exemption from your General Practitioner if applicable.
N.B. Not providing this information will result in exclusion from care in the event of particular infections, at the discretion of the Population Health Unit. Normal fees will apply during absence.
You can get a copy of your child’s immunisation records held on ACIR (Australian Childhood Immunisation Register):
