NEW CHILD CARE SUBSIDY

From the 2nd of July 2018 the new Child Care Subsidy will replace the Child Care Benefit. From this date Registered Care will cease under the New Child Care Package. If the service primarily provides only a preschool or kindergarten program (like a standalone preschool), then this program will not attract the new subsidy.

As directed above, as of the 2nd of July 2018 Golden Square Kindergarten families will no longer be eligible for any rebate. Registered Child Care receipts for term 1 and 2 for this year will be issued before the end of term 2.
