Child Care Subsidy - Family Transition

  

Many of you would be aware that the Child Care Benefit/Rebate process is changing. You will be transitioning from these incentives to the new Child Care Subsidy.

Families who currently receive Child Care Benefit and/or Child Care Rebate as a fee reduction for approved care (paid directly to Killara Kids) will need to complete a streamlined online Child Care Subsidy assessment by providing their 2018-2019 family income estimate, their activity details and confirming their child's enrolment. These details can be provided through your Centrelink online account via my.gov.au or through the Express Plus Centrelink mobile App.

Families currently receiving Child Care Benefit as a lump sum (not paid to Killara Kids) will need to complete a full Child Care Subsidy claim form. 

We have attached a brochure for your information and ask you take the time to read it carefully and follow the appropriate steps to ensure your transition to the new subsidy is seamless.

FAMILY TRANSITION - BROCHURE

I am currently undergoing training in the new Subsidy and the transition process. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the process please feel free to get in touch with me.

Many thanks,

QIP Wall

Did you know???

In March this year, Killara Kids received its EXCEEDING rating for the service. A service can receive this rating when they go through the assesment & rating process where an assessor rates the service based on 7 quality areas. 

To ensure Killara Kids maintains this high level of excellence, we have implemented a QIP wall where we will post a question each month to gain feedback from families so that we can strive for improvement. We encourage all families to get involved so that Killara Kids can strive for continuous improvement.

If you would like more information about the National Quality Framework & assessment process please follow the link below or ask one of our friendly educators at the service!!
