What you need to do to prepare

Dear Families

From 2 July 2018, there will be a new Child Care Subsidy that will replace the current Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate.

It’s essential that you complete an online assessment to receive the new payment.

The Department of Education and Training is hosting three family information webcasts to help you understand what you need to do to transition to the Child Care Subsidy.

You will be able to ask questions through the live chat functionality.

The sessions will be held at the following times:

  • Thursday 19 April 2018 – 7.00pm – 8.30pm AEST
  • Thursday 3 May 2018 – 2.30pm – 4.00pm AEST
  • Tuesday 15 May 2018 – 8.00pm – 9.30pm AEST

Please register your interest with the Department of Education and Training if you would like to participate.
