These data items are used in conjunction with each other to describe the fee schedules for each type of service, based on time period, activity or group. They are collected together and reported as a dollar amount against each fee schedule type within a service type.
Fees recorded should be the standard one child fee. Services should report their standard fee, that is, the tuition fee only, without any reductions such as fee relief, sliding scales for families or other discounts. Voluntary levies paid by parents should not be included, nor should additional charges for service components such as nappy supplies or meals.
Information on fees charged by service providers can be used for calculating average fees charged for early childhood and education services in Australia. This can also be used with additional service data items to provide averages for service types and geographical locations.This item is collected in conjunction with the fee schedule type.
