Happy Haven began operating on The Pines school site at the beginning of 2015 – although the families at this time all knew Jamie, Nick, and the rest of the staff team from their work at The Pines over many years prior. We operate out of the transportable buildings behind the ‘houses’, with our office located through the door closest to the North Pines car park. This office is generally staffed between 6:30am-6:00pm Monday – Friday. We are able to offer many exciting opportunities as a part of our program, including regular cooking, gardening, and martial arts experiences.

We offer care before & after school, on Pupil Free Days and during school holidays. We do not operate on Public Holidays. Our session times are as follows: BSC – 6:30-8:30am, ASC – 3:00-6:00pm, Early Finish – 2:00-6:00pm (last Friday of each term), Pupil Free Days – 6:30am-6:00pm, and Vacation Care – 6:30am-6:00pm.

We charge sessional fees for each care component (i.e. not dependent on how long your child attends the session), and are subject to your individual Childcare Benefit & Child Care Rebate situation. This is how little you could be paying!

BSC = $4.19                      ASC = $5.28 (Early Finish = $5.51)

Pupil Free Day & Vacation Care = $5.21

Fees as of 31/08/16.  *Fees listed are based on a family subsidised with 100% Child Care Benefit and who have nominated their Child Care Rebate to be paid direct to the service as a fee reduction.  These are estimates only and staff will assist with working out what your fees will be depending on your individual case.  
Session Fees before CCB & CCR are BSC $14.50, ASC $20.00, VAC/ PFD $50.50. The service has a late pick up policy.
