Childcare Subsidy
WINZ provides subsidies to families who meet the criteria. Please phone WINZ to discuss your eligibility.
WINZ subsidies are not paid for Christmas Day and Good Friday.
WINZ subsidies are NOT available while the service is closed.

Travel Reimbursement:
45 cents per km (if a pick up/drop is required) If more than one child is to be transported (including the Educator’s child) the cost is to be shared fairly.

Payment
All fees are paid directly to the educator.

Educators will be responsible for:
– Issuing parents/guardians with receipts for payment. (This will be required for your tax returns – we will no longer have a record of payments made so will be unable to provide an annual tax letter.)
– Informing parents/guardians of the frequency of payment, and the preferred payment method.

KIDDZ will be responsible for the following:
– Passing on any WINZ subsidy payments to the Educators. This will only be passed on to the educator when it has been received by KIDDZ. Parents/guardians will be required to pay the Educator full fees until the subsidy is received by KIDDZ.

KIDDZ will advise the parents/ guardians and the educator when WINZ subsidy has been received and the payment that will be required to be paid directly to the educator

MOE Funding:
The funding we receive from the Ministry of Education is used to pay Visiting Teacher wages, purchase resources, Professional development for Visiting Teachers and Educators, and supporting families and educators.
