Common Questions about the Child Care Subsidy

As everyone’s circumstances are different, the following information is a guide only. To discuss your individual eligibility, please contact the Family Assistance Office (FAO).

How much Child Care Subsidy will I get? 

A families Child Care Subsidy will be based on their combined annual family income applied per child regardless of how many children there are. 

How is the Child Care Subsidy calculated? 

There are 3 components the Australian Government considers, to determine a family’s level of Child Care Subsidy:

  1. Combined Family Income
  2. Activity Level of Parents
  3. Type of Child Care Service (Cameron Park Early Learning Centre falls in the “Centre Based Day Care” section)

You can use the online estimator to determine the cost of Child Care for your family.

If I am not working, studying or training, can I still receive government subsidy? 

In a two parent family, both parents must meet the activity test, and the person with the lower number of hours will determine the relevant step of the activity test. In a sole parent family, the sole parent must meet the activity test.

How much can a Family Earn before they’re eligible?

If the combined annual family income exceeds $351,248, a family may not be eligible to receive the Child Care Subsidy. 

How is the Child Care Subsidy paid? 

The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to child care centres each fortnight according to the attendance records of each child. Families must then pay the difference between the subsidy and the. fee charged.

More Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Child Care Subsidy can be found on the Australian Government Website.

If you’d like to enrol your child into Cameron Park Early Learning Centre, we will first schedule a visit. During this visit, one of our staff will show you around and discuss daily routines, programs, policies and orientation procedure. If we cannot guarantee your child’s placement at this point, you will be invited to complete our waitlist application. We will then contact you when/if a position becomes available.

We understand the introduction into long day care can be daunting for children and parents. Children’s welfare and wellbeing are the priority for primary care educators when welcoming new children to the centre and when assisting the family to settle into the centre environment.

We will organise a meet and greet session with your child’s educators where you will have the opportunity to ask questions and get to know the staff.

Easing your child gradually into care promotes a more successful transition ensuring their emotional wellbeing and sense of contentment.

 

We recommend a start of a few hours a day for the first few days. We understand due to work circumstances this may not be possible and there is of course, flexibility in the orientation schedule.

If your child becomes unwell, we will contact you immediately and you may be required to pick your child up.

We are committed to providing and maintaining a healthy environment, so please do not send your child to the centre, if sick.

In the case your child has been prescribed antibiotics, our centre’s policy requires the child to have been taking the medication for at least 24 hours prior to returning to the centre.
