PM Scott Morrison released a new relief package to support the ongoing viability of early childhood services yesterday.
We’d like to continue to remind you that our service is open and we are here for you.
Following Morrison’s announcement, families can now keep bookings in place at no cost, even if your child is temporarily not currently attending the service. This allows you to hold your child’s place until you are ready to re-commence care. This applies to all enrolled families, regardless if you are eligible for the child care subsidy (CCS) or not.
We understand that early education services are vital for so many parents. As mentioned by the Prime Minister, children also need familiarity and continuity in this unsettling time. This relief package will help the sector and its employees make it to the other side of the crisis, ensuring that your child’s educators are looked after, and that we’ll be there when you need us.
We continue to seek further clarification around the prioritisation of families under this announcement and will keep you updated.
