Busy Bumbles Fees and Sessions Updates

Busy Bumbles is proud to offer exceptional Before and After School Care and Holiday Programmes that kids and parents love. We work hard to keep our pricing as affordable as possible while maintaining the highest standards of service and care.

Withincreasing costs and the introduction of new initiatives at a Government level (increased pay rates, extra sick days and the extra public holiday) we must review our pricing to help cover our costs and ensure we can continue to offer our fantastic service.

Fees Update 

Giving families as much notice as possible, small changes are scheduled to take effect from the start of Term 4, Monday 18 October 2021. We are purposefully staggering this increase to make the transition as cost-effective as possible for our families.

Before & After School Care sessions will increase by $0.50 from Term 4, Monday 18 October 2021.

Holiday Programme sessions will increase by $5.00 from Term 4, Monday 18 October 2021.

Before & After School Care sessions will increase by $0.50 at the start of Term 1, 2022.

Following these changes, we aim to only review fees on a yearly basis. Please contact us if you require further information.

Busy Bumbles is proud to continue to offer a 10% discount to families with 2 or more children. WINZ/ OSCAR subsidies are available (phone 0800 559 009).

Sessions Update

Please note that, by popular demand, we are bringing back our 3 – 5pm session at the start of 2022, and will then no longer offer the 3 – 4:30pm session.

Thank You for Your Understanding & Support

While we’d prefer to never need to increase our pricing, it’s vital to us that we can continue to provide the high-quality service our families expect from us.

From all of us at Busy Bumbles, thank you for your continued support and entrusting your children in our care.
