BIG CHILDCARE ?

Big Childcare is a leader in the Out of School Hours Industry; our team is professional, experienced, nurturing and committed to providing a supportive and transparent environment for families, where their feedback and support is highly valued.

 

We provide exceptional quality, out of school hours care, for school aged children which meets the health, safety and wellbeing needs of the children and families in the community.

 

We believe in making our programs engaging, diverse, physically active and fun, where children’s learning can be scaffolded, so they can reach their full potential.  Through these experiences children will develop a range of life long skills including building on their social and emotional capacity.

Children are valued and respected as individuals and central to our programs. The programs we offer are developed in conjunction with educators, schools, the community, children and families. They are critically reflected upon and evaluated to ensure we are providing positive experiences that are age appropriate and extend every child.

CHILDCARE SUBSIDY CHANGES

A quick guide to the New Government Childcare Package.

What’s happening?

  • The upcoming Government change will commence from July 2, 2018
    The Australian Government is investing an additional $2.5 billion into early education and care over the next 4 years
  • This will support the 1.2 million families who use approved child care
  • The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) which will replace the Child Care
  • Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) with a single, means-tested subsidy
  • This will remove the current cap and provide assistance to more families in balancing work and early education and care.

The New Childcare Subsidy (CCS) will:

  • Be simpler than the current multi-payment system
  • Reduce out of pocket expenses for most families
  • Be more targeted, providing further assistance to low and middle-income families

How much Childcare Subsidy (CCS) will I be entitled to?

This will depend on three factors:

  1. How much ‘work related’ activity (full time, part time and study) you and your partner undertake each fortnight. The entitlement is based on the lesser activity figure for a member of a couple
  2. Your total combined family income
  3. The amount of childcare undertaken

For your convenience please use the button below to estimate your entitlements. This will allow you to make an informed decision around your individual family circumstances and if your family can enjoy even more benefits of being in before and after care.

The Government has provided a handy CCS Estimator that can help you see how the new changes may affect you.

If you need more help please talk to your centre manager.
