Every centre I've ever worked in change a 2 week bond to be paid ASAP when you enroll. Sometimes it can take a week or two for that to happen. We also ask $50 deposit to secure a spot once you take it
Many families skip out of the fees and pull their kids and leave own many $$$. Also every year we will have families that will say yep we want that day fill out all the forms etc and never turn up. Than we will have a family come in and we can't give a spot out as none are available all along that family isn't coming so the $50 kinda secures people to come back and take the spot allocated to them
Generally the bond is than transferred to your account during your final two weeks at the centre wether that be after a few months or a few years

I don't understand the need for a bond plus two weeks on advance how ridiculous. Shouldn't the two weeks in advance be enough of a bond.
To the op I've never had to pay a bond at my sons daycare, in fact I didnt even have to pay fees in advance

I paid a bond for my daughters daycare centre a whole $45. Refundable at the end of the year if you want or carried over til the next year. My centre started charging bond as some customers were quite behind in their fees.
We use family day care also don't know of any carers asking for bond though.

its so ridiculous, they direct debit out of your account 2 weeks in advance at all times too, so its not as if you can leave without paying??
imagine the interest they are making off everyones bond!!
this centre has approx 120 kids a day @$92 per child
sounds like its all about the money to me....

It is a business as well is it not? Wasn't aware child care were not-for-profit...
I'm grateful I have the option to pay via eftpos.
