Bookings & Payment

IMG 6728

Before and after school care bookings re-open every school year. Holiday programs and pupil free day plans are published via COMPASS and in the school newsletter around 5 weeks before the end of each term.

Demand for Biz – E – Kidz can be high and due to limitations, not all requests for care can be met. Biz – E – Kidz allocates places according to the government guidelines for the priority of access to childcare.

How to make payments

Statements are sent in via email and show a running balance of all activity including payments, childcare subsidy, fees, and care used in the past 4 weeks.

Payments can be made at the school office by cash, cheque, credit card, EFTPOS, and Bpay. If paying by Bpay your individual customer and the school’s BPay number are available by contacting the school on 9329 6902 or north.melbourne.ps@education.vic.gov.au 

These numbers are also on the fee statement issued by the school at the beginning of the year.

As there is no way that the school is able to see what money paid via BPay is for specifically, we ask that families email the school on north.melbourne.ps@education.vic.gov.au to inform them that the payment made is for Biz - E - Kidz, what the Biz - E - Kidz family ID number is and how much they have paid.


Child Care Subsidy

If you are eligible for Child Care Subsidy (CCS) please make sure you supply Biz – E – Kidz with parent’s (Claiming CCS) and child’s Customer Reference Numbers (supplied by Centrelink) and dates of birth at the time of enrolment so Biz – E – Kidz can ensure you get the correct entitlement. 

For more information contact Services Australia or Centrelink on 136150 or https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/individuals/services/centrelink/child-care-subsidy
