Freedom to choose how you use your Child Care Subsidy
We know that there is no one size fits all option for our families when it comes to early childhood education and care. That is why we are giving families the freedom to choose which hours best suit their needs.
More than just sessional care, at our centres, you can choose from our nine-hour, ten-hour or full day sessions and make the most out of the Child Care Subsidy.
Designed to reduce out of pocket costs and increase access to subsidised hours, the new flexible model is part of our commitment to providing greater access to quality early childhood education and care.
Does your current child care centre offer you the below flexibility?
|CHOOSE YOUR DROP OFF/PICK UP TIME.
|NO LATE FEES OR CHARGES.
|30-60 MINUTE GRACE PERIODS.
|No limits within licensed operating hours.
|No additional fees within licensed operating hours.
|No stress if you’re late within licensed operating hours. 30 minutes grace for 9-hour sessions, 1 hour for 10-hour sessions.
*All savings are dependent on child care hours, activity hours and combined family income.
Flexible Hours options may not work for everyone but at our centres you have the freedom to choose the option. To find out which flexible hours option best suit you, use the Child Care Subsidy Calculator below:
