(a) the service’s provision of education and care to any child enrolled at the service; or
(b) the family’s ability to utilise the service.
(2) The approved provider of an education and care service must ensure that parents of children enrolled at the service are notified at least 14 days before making any change that will affect the fees charged or the way in which fees are collected.
