It's here and it's for you!

As an early education and care provider you will be well aware, that one of the first things most parents want to know when they are considering an early childhood service is how much it is going to cost them and what subsidies are available.

This is understandable given the complexity of the subsidy system and the varying levels of support available to families. Different fee structures and methods of charging can also confound the process and this is a real pain point for families.

As you know CareforKids.com.au works hard to educate parents about the cost of child care and we have created a range of articles and resources to inform the decision making process. We also strongly encourage providers to include up-to-date fee information on their CareforKids.com.au profile page.

In addition to these we are excited to announce the launch of our brand new Child Care Subsidy Calculator.

The state of the art CareforKids.com.au Child Care Subsidy Calculator provides parents with personal information about the cost of care across three domains:

  • The total cost of care
  • The estimated amount of Child Care Subsidy family may receive
  • Out of pocket expenses

All parents need to do is provide a few details about their family structure, income and activity levels and the calculator will do the rest.

The great thing about our calculator is that it is intuitive, easy to use and the results are displayed immediately as well as emailed for later reference.

In addition it includes subsidy estimations for all early childhood education and care providers, including family day care, outside school hours care and long day care centres.

Given the scope and versatility of our calculator we welcome and encourage all interested early childhood providers to include a link to the CareforKids.com.au Child Care Subsidy Calculator on their website.

This valuable tool will make it easier for families considering your service to understand the subsidy they may be entitled to and their out-of-pocket cost of care, which adds a great deal of information to the decision making process.

To be one of the first services to benefit from this new resource and include a link to the CareforKids.com.au Child Care Subsidy Calculator on your website, simply email support@careforkids.com.au and we will guide you through the process.
