Clovel’s full fees range from $104.00 to $162.00 per day, before Child Care Subsidy (CCS) fee contributions. Thus different gap fees apply dependent on your child’s age, days of attendance, location and CCS payment. Contact us for further fee information.

All meals, nappies, linen, a sun hat as well as all educational programs beginning with our babies brain linkages program and moving on to our preschool program for all aged children are included in our daily fee.

Clovel does not charge a bond, rather we have a $50 non refundable Enrolment Fee and only charge our families once they start their early learning and care journey with us

We supply breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late afternoon tea. Please see our Nutrition and Menu page for further information.

With Clovel’s menu design we can easily adjust the menu to suit each child’s cultural, religious or allergy needs. All Clovel centres are nut free.

Each centre has a range of qualified staff, from Early Childhood Teaching Degree or Advanced Diploma Educators through to our Early Childhood Trainees.

Clovel meets and extends on the government’s educator to child ratios of 1:4 for under 2yr olds; 1:5 for 2yr olds; 1:10 for 3-5yr olds.

Clovel families utilise the Kindyhub app to view their child’s photos, learning and development. In addition, we encourage discussion between our educators and families and regularly update our families on their child’s progress and goals.
