The curriculum is play-based, and the programmes are based on building relationships with the whole child – aiming to meet the diverse individual needs by assisting children to develop their physical self, thinking and communicating self, social development, arts and creativity, design and technology, diversity and understanding of the world around them. We view the early years as one of the most vital times of a person’s life. Early childhood is important in that it is the time when children gain the essential skills, knowledge and dispositions critical for success in life.
Child Care Subsidy
On 2 July 2018 the Child Care Subsidy and Additional Child Care Subsidy replaced the previous child care fee assistance payments (Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate). Child Care Subsidy will generally be paid directly to your approved child care provider/s to reduce the fees you pay.
If you were receiving child care fee assistance before 2 July 2018 and haven’t transitioned to the Child Care Subsidy yet, you will need to submit a new Child Care Subsidy claim if you wish to receive child care fee assistance.
You will need to submit a new claim for Child Care Subsidy if you have only recently started using child care or if you claimed child care fee assistance as a lump sum in 2017-18 and wish to receive the new Child Care Subsidy in 2018-19.
You can submit a new Child Care Subsidy claim using your Centrelink online account through myGov.
