The Turnbull Government’s new child care and early learning system commences on 2 July 2018. Families in the Hills district are being urged to sign on and “make the switch” ready for the new system.
The new childcare package will provide the greatest hours of support to the families who work the longest hours, and the greatest subsidy and financial support to the families who earn the least.
The switch to the new system is not automatic. Even if your circumstances are likely to change before July 2, make the switch through your Centrelink account as updates can be made easily at any point via your Centrelink online account via myGov.
If you need assistance in making the switch you can phone the helpdesk on 136 150. For further information and to update your details visit www.education.gov.au/childcare.
