New Child Care Package


Good Afternoon Families,

Have you taken a look into the New Child Care Package yet?

As parents and account holders you need to be aware of the changes about to take place on July 2nd, 2018?

Our office team is currently undertaking training with our software provider and the government with regards to the new Child Care Subsidy and QikKids upgrade to be prepared for the July rollout.

Please click the link below as it is the account holder’s responsibility to be familiar with the new system. If you do not already have a MyGov account, setting up an account will be required to ensure you can successfully claim and childcare subsidy offset from July 2018 onwards, otherwise full fees will apply.

Child Care Subsidy - combined family income

Below is the table which shows the percentage of child care fees the Government will contribute based on a family combined income under the new model released in July 2018.

Combined family income is one of the three factors that will determine a family's level of Child Care Subsidy.

Under the Child Care Subsidy, the percentage of subsidy a family will be entitled to will be based on their combined annual income, with more financial support available to lower income families.

Combined family income^ Subsidy rate*

  • Up to $65,710 85%

  • Over $65,710 to under $170,710 Gradually reducing to 50%

  • $170,710 to under $250,000 50%

  • $250,000 to under $340,000 Gradually reducing to 20%

  • $340,000 to under $350,000 20%

  • $350,000 or more 0%

^ These figures will be increased by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) when the package begins in July 2018.

Kind regards,

Raeleen Wren General Manager, Wilston Kids Care
