The new child care package
The Australian Government is investing an additional $2.5 billion into early education and care over the next four years. As a result, the Child Care Subsidy will replace the current child care assistance systems, the Child Care Rebate and the Child Care Benefit, starting 2 July 2018. This new system will support 1.2 million families who use the current approved early education and care.

Taking Advantage of the New Child Care Package
The transition to the new child care system won’t happen automatically. Families who want to take advantage of the new system from 2 July 2018 have to finish a Child Care Subsidy assessment via their myGov accounts. The evaluation requires new information and confirmation of current details, like the combined family income, the parents’ activity level and type of child care service you receive. This assessment ensures that you continue to receive childcare assistance from that day. We encourage you to complete it as early as possible. Otherwise, you might not receive the assistance. If you any questions, reach out to our team today. We’re happy to explain the details. Give your child a positive and fun-filled learning experience. Enrol your child at Lyndel Childcare Centre today.
