Parents cannot be charged a fee for hours that are claimed as 20 Hours ECE. This applies whether they are paying the service provider or the educator. Optional charges enable this. An optional charge is a request for a payment that parents may choose whether or not to pay for a specific one-off or ongoing purpose that:. Optional charges should reflect the real and actual costs of the additional service, item or activity.
Parents must have a choice about whether they want to pay for the additional service, item or activity covered by the optional charge. They must be informed in writing that agreeing to the optional charge is not compulsory, and they must not be penalised if they choose not to pay an optional charge.
This is consistent with the ability to request optional charges for exceeding ratio requirements. As for all optional charges, parents must be able to decide whether they want to pay this particular optional charge. This must be signed and dated by the parent. Optional charges are not compulsory. If a parent chooses not to pay an optional charge, the only action that can be taken is to withhold the additional services, items or activities covered by the optional charge. By choosing not to pay an optional charge, parents are agreeing not to have access to that service, item or activity.
Parents who choose not to pay an optional charge must receive at least the standard of ECE required by regulation for their child. Once a parent agrees to pay an optional charge, and their agreement is recorded on the enrolment agreement form, then payment can be enforced. The agreement to pay optional charges must include how long the agreement will last, and what the rules are about making changes to the agreement.
Reasonable opportunities must be provided for parents to review their decisions regarding optional charges. What is reasonable will differ, but in most cases parents should have at least one opportunity to change their minds about paying optional charges. Either party may initiate a change to the agreement, but both parties must agree on the changes. Any change to the agreement on optional charges is a change to the enrolment agreement. If a parent has agreed to pay an optional charge and has stopped paying it, then payment can be enforced as for any other fee, or the additional services, items or activities covered by the optional charge can be withdrawn.
It is good practice to talk to parents and check their willingness to pay. Special excursions are outings that parents agree to prior to the excursion or outing taking place. In general, regular excursions are part of an ongoing planned and consistent routine of education and care and should not incur an optional charge unless there is a direct cost associated with the activity itself, such as an entry fee. A request for a transport fee for a regular excursion could be considered if travel is required, but should not be requested if the activity is within a reasonable walking distance.
If a parent with a child in home-based ECE has requested that the child be taken to a specific activity such as dance lessons on a regular basis, then an optional charge could be requested for both the activity if not already paid for by the parent and the transport.
Special excursions are not part of the planned and consistent routine of education and care. Any direct costs associated with the activity and associated transport can be the subject of an optional charge. Jadeja played a staggering innings — 77 from 59 balls, with four fours and four sixes.
