Our Fees

Fees

All Counties Manukau Kindergarten Association (CMKA) kindergartens offer 20 hours ECE. Click here to find out more about how you can use your 20 Hours ECE in our kindergartens.

If you do not use your 20 Hours ECE allocation at our kindergartens, or your child attends for more than 20 hours each week,  the following fees apply:

Full day Kindergarten -  $4.70 per hour

A full day kindergarten operates sessions that can either be 3 or 6 hours long. They have more staff than a sessional kindergarten, with one teacher for every 10 children, and offer flexible days and times that your child can attend. All our kindergartens except one operate this way.

WINZ Subsidies

 Eligible families can access a subsidy to assist with the fee payments under the government’s “Working for Families” scheme

Fundraising, Grants and Donations

As a community based not-for-profit organisation, the Association also relies on community grants, donations and fundraising to maintain and improve the kindergarten teaching and learning environment. 20 hours ECE funding, and fees only provide the minimum equipment, and to ensure quality the Association asks parents to contribute a donation and participate in fundraising to cover:

 - resources, books, toys,computers/digital cameras and other tools for use with children

-  building additions and major playground upgrades to comply with new regulations and to improve learning environments

All fundraising, including grants and donations remain in kindergarten operational accounts, to be spent on the children who are currently attending.The Association maintains separate accounting records for each kindergarten to identify income from all sources, including locally raised funds. Each kindergarten displays a copy of the most recent CMKA audited financial statements detailing kindergarten operating income and expenditure.
