Two years without a fee increase – a win for families!

Big Fat Smile’s commitment to access to quality early learning and care and Out of School Hours Care is evident.  The fees at Big Fat Smile services have not increased in nearly 18 months and will not increase at the start of 2021 either. The current pandemic environment has placed a number of stressors on families, particularly on finances, so this is news will come as a welcome relief for Big Fat Smile families.

The Big Fat Smile Board of Directors confirmed at their last meeting that there would be no increase in fees for families until July 2021. This means that fees at all Big Fat Smile services will have remained static for 2 years. This is a win for families, and a positive for all children in care at a Big Fat Smile service. Big Fat Smile, as a not-for-profit organisation, is keeping a focus on the hip-pocket for families when they need it most, keeping true to our vision and values.
