Higher Child Care Subsidy and removal of annual cap - Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Australian Government 10/10/2021

Higher Child Care Subsidy and removal of annual cap - Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Australian Government

BREAKING: Higher CCS for multiple children and removal of annual cap brought forward
We’re making changes to the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) to help families who currently pay the most and experience the biggest barriers to participation in work.

From 10 December 2021, we’re removing the annual cap for all families who get CCS.

From 7 March 2022, families with more than one child in care will get a higher subsidy.

These changes were announced in the 2021–22 Budget. We’re implementing the changes earlier than initially announced to provide more support to families sooner.

Annual cap
Families earning more than $190,015 (2021–22 terms) have an annual subsidy cap of $10,655 per child each financial year.

From 10 December 2021, we’re removing the annual cap for all families who get CCS.

Families with more than one child in care
From 7 March 2022, families with children aged five or under in care will get a higher subsidy for their second child and younger children.

Who will be eligible?
Families may be eligible if they:

earn less than $354,305
have more than one child aged five or under in child care.
Who gets the higher subsidy?
Services Australia will work out which children get the higher subsidy by:

assessing all children in the family unit
identifying the standard rate child
identifying the higher rate children.
The standard rate child will get the standard CCS subsidy. Younger children will get a higher subsidy.

The standard rate child is the eldest child in the family unit aged five or under who is eligible for CCS and attending care.

How much do higher rate children get?
Eligible higher rate children will receive a 30% higher subsidy, up to a maximum 95%.

Children eligible for the higher CCS rate will have the increase automatically included in their CCS percentage reported to services.

What do I need to do?
Child care services don’t need to do anything to help families get the higher rate. Services Australia is working with software providers to implement the changes.

It is important that your staff and families are aware of the changes. We’ll provide more information and resources to share with staff and families in the weeks and months ahead.

Details about the changes to CCS are available on our website https://www.dese.gov.au/child-care-subsidy/higher-child-care-subsidy-and-removal-annual-cap

Higher Child Care Subsidy and removal of annual cap - Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Australian Government We’re making changes to the Child Care Subsidy (CCS). We’ll soon pay a higher subsidy to families with more than one child in care and remove the annual cap for all families who get CCS.

🙌Raise your voice to praise children...... lower it and stay calm when you need to guide them👌

❣Remember, they are just learning where they fit in, in this vast world we live and they have big emotions just as we do❣

🌿When we feel overwhelmed with our children is it our place to breath, be calm and help them through their emotions🌿

😁Have an amazing Sunday😁

🥰10 REASONS TO APPRECIATE A DAYCARE TEACHER👨‍🏫👩🏼‍🏫

1. They are not daycare workers, they are daycare teachers. Their lesson plan every day includes: how to share, how to have “nice hands” 🙌and “walking feet,” 🚶how to say please and thank you, how to walk behind someone without pushing, how to take turns, and how to have “listening ears.”👂

2. They are not just teachers. They are also janitors and 👨‍⚕️nurses. They make boo-boos feel better and dry up tears👩‍⚕️. They spray, wipe, sanitize, sweep, mop, vacuum, and take out the trash.

3. 🍲🍛They are waitresses. They balance little trays and cups of milk. They pick up squashed peas off the floor. Scoop peaches when they ask for more.🍽

4. 💩They change 5 dirty diapers, within 10 minutes, the day after beef and corn.

5. They get 12 little ducklings to follow in a row on their way to the playground.🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥

6. 🎒🩴They tie tiny shoes. Snap tiny pants. Fold tiny blankeys. Wipe tiny noses. Spend 5 minutes fixing the heels of tiny Converse. Multiply all of this by 12 on some days.🧦👕

7. 😁They are there before parents go to work and-or don’t go home until the last kid is picked up as the second hand ticks to closing time.🕕

8. 🛏They lay out cots and pillows and blankeys and paci’s. They know who gets a pacifier, who gets a 6 oz bottle🍼, who has to have all the lights out, who will wake up early🌄, who came in late and will lay awake. They sit between cots patting restless toddlers to sleep.😴 They spend the rest of nap time keeping the one early riser from waking the 11 others.🤱

9. 👨‍👩‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦They go home and take care of their own families and homes, or their own children. They somehow find time to rest their tired feet.

10.🥰 They are patient and kind. They are trustworthy. They do their best with no promise of rest. They don’t enjoy disciplining, but do it with love. Their heart swells to see your child grow and learn and smile and play. They laugh at the funny things the kids always say. Say thank you to your daycare teacher. They love your child❤️

👩‍🚒🧑‍🚒This week the children celebrated and supported our AMAZING fire fighters on International Fire Fighters Day🔥

🚌The children went to visit our fire fighters at the Geraldton Fire Station and got a complete tour of the station🚒

👏A HUGE thank you to our Geraldton fire fighters and for all that you do for our community! 👍

25/04/2021

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them. Lest we forget!

😍Recently one of our thoughtful parents reached out to us to assist them with collecting donations for those families in our community who have been effected by TC Seroja 🌪

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 As you are aware so many families in Northampton and surrounding communities are still without power and even without homes👩‍👧👨‍👦‍👦

❤️We consider everyone at Bambi a part of our family and we would love if we could all come together to collect donations for the children and families of our wider community 🙏

👀Please see the poster below for the drop off points and items that the community are requiring donations of 👶👧🧒

If you can help in any way possible please do not hesitate to contact us at Bambi or pop in with your donations at our long day care services both located in the CBD.
