Waiting List Heritage is affiliated with the Australian National University (ANU) and priority is given to the children of staff and students at the ANU. An online waiting list application is available at childcareapplication.com if your family would like to join our community.
It is important that email and mobile phone details are up to date on the application as an email and text message will be sent to offer a place when one becomes available. Offers must be accepted or declined within 2 working days by calling, emailing or visiting the service. Failure to respond results in offers becoming inactive.
Fees Fees are currently $119.50 per day and are payable fortnightly in advance via Ezidebit. Salary sacrifice is available to ANU employees as a pre-tax or post-tax deduction.
Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) All families who are 'responsible for paying the child care fees’ are able to apply for the means tested Child Care Benefit. If an employer contributes to the cost of child care through salary sacrificing or packaging, it is important that families discuss with the employer who is ‘responsible for the cost’.
The Child Care Rebate helps families cover the out-of-pocket costs of child care and it is not income tested. Even if a family's income is too high to receive the Child Care Benefit, they may still be eligible for the Child Care Rebate which covers up to 50 per cent of out-of-pocket costs up to $7,500 per child per year.
