Child Care Subsidy

The child care subsidy is government funding, famalies need to apply for it through centrelink and will recieve a percentage (which will be paid by centrelink to the childcare provider). This will also evaluate how many hours of childcare a week you can have subsidised depending on your families activity hours. For more information go onto the centrelink website or call Leigh on 0414 535 685 and she will be happy to explain in more depth.
