Frequently asked questions

 

What is the minimum commitment for using the childcare centre?

Generally, most centres ask a minimum attendance of 3 sessions for two simple reasons, it’s quite a lot of admin to get you enrolled and your bub is unlikely to bond with the carers in a one-off session. The BubDesk office however can be used on a casual basis (space permitting) if you only need a desk every now and then. In this instance, go for casual PAYG.

If I purchase a 12 or 24 pack pass how long do I have to get started?

You’ll need to plan on getting underway within 60 days as we will be holding you a place.

If I opt for Weekly by direct debit how long am I committed for?

To secure the reduced weekly rate the direct debit will be set up for 10 weeks. If you’re testing the waters we suggest you start with casual.

What if my choice of days in unavailable?

If we are unable to meet your preferred days within 4 weeks we will refund you in full. You will be notified within 10 business days of purchase. Mid week days are more challenging, but Mondays and Fridays are actually our most popular due to the “make up session” policy, which means you don’t lose your visit even if your day falls on a public holiday.

How do I go about actually enrolling my baby in the centre?

Once you have selected & confirmed your BubDesk option we will be in touch to organise enrolment paperwork, preferred days and to arrange orientation sessions

Can I attend a tour first?

Absolutely – we run seasonal BubDesk tours, which you’ll find on the Events page or you can request a private tour at this link www.bubdesk.com.au/tour-request/

What if my baby doesn't settle in well?

Sadly there is no easy road to childcare, but at least you’ll be onsite if they need you. You can expect some tears when you leave and it can take several weeks before your baby bonds with the educators. If you’re testing the waters and not in any hurry, start with casual, but if you’re in it for the long haul you’re best off with a pass pack that has extended validity – that way if you do need to take a short break you can.

Is there parking onsite?

All centres with the exception of Murdoch have free parking onsite. Murdoch has paid street parking at a cost of $2.20 per hour (last check), but is walking distance from Murdoch Station and has a bus stop right outside….some members even ride their bikes!

What sort of people will I find at BubDesk to network with?

BubDesk is an absolute melting pot of skills and industries – everything from landscape architects to accountants to hoola hooping instructors. Whatever you need help with there’ll be someone on hand and you’ll often find people in need of your skills/services.

If my child is in the childcare centre can I leave the building for meetings?

With the exception of Next Gen, all our partnering centres are fully licensed, so you’re welcome to come and go as you please. Next Gen is a creche, so you will need to remain onsite while at the club.

Am I eligible for the childcare rebates when using a BubDesk office?

With the exception of Next Gen, all our partnering centres are fully licensed, which means that if you’re eligible for the Centrelink rebate (best to check with them directly) you will receive it when enrolled at our centres. The government rebate does not apply to the BubDesk office use, only the childcare component.

Do I need to come at the same time each week?

Your bub will be enrolled at the centre just like any normal non-BubDesk centre, which means they will need to attend the same time each week. Some centres offer as little as a half day per week.

Terms & Conditions

 

Minimum Term - Childcare

BubDesk office space can be booked casually, however our childcare centres request a minimum of 3 sessions

Minimum Term - Weekly by Direct Debit

To secure the reduced weekly rate the direct debit will be set up for 10 weeks. If you’re testing the waters we suggest you start with casual.

Validity

If you purchase either a 12 or 24 pass pack or opt for the weekly direct debit you’ll need to plan on getting underway within 60 days as we will be holding you a place. A 12 pass pack is valid for 4 months and the 24 pass pack is valid for 6 months

Preferred Days

If we are unable to meet your preferred days within 4 weeks we will refund you in full. You will be notified within 10 business days of purchase.

Refunds

Pass Packs are non-refundable unless your day preferences cannot be accommodated. You can take a short break and recommence if you need to, but if you’re “testing the waters” start with some casual sessions.

Make Up Days

If you select PAYG Weekly or one of the Pack Passes you will be offered a BubDesk office make up session in the event you are sick, away or your session falls on a public holiday. Some centres will also offer a make up session for the care component (please check individual centre profiles for participating centres). At centres that do offer this you will need to notify the centre before or on the day of the scheduled visit to rebook a new date.
