Child Care Industry News
March 20, 2018
Welcome, this week a look at the technology changes resulting from the new Child Care Package, which march closer everyday, as well as a mental health initiative being spearheaded by beyondblue, which aims to improve the mental wellbeing of young children.
Technology changes under the Jobs for Families Child Care Package
Implementation of the Jobs for Families Package and new Child Care Subsidy is due to be complete by 2 July this year and with such a significant change just around the corner, most of the 17,000 early childhood education and care providers affected by the reforms will have already started preparing.

As you already know, the single Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a new payment that will replace the Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit for families using a variety of early childhood services including centre based care, family day care, outside school hours and vacation care, in home care and occasional care. The CCS will be paid directly to providers, and families will pay the difference between the fee charged by the provider and the subsidy.
A new approach to mental health in education
From August 2018, beyondblue will lead a new National Education Initiative with the aim of transforming Australia's approach to child and youth mental health care, by providing a single end-to-end school-based mental health framework.

This comprehensive initiative will cover the continuum from early childhood to secondary school and will support mental health promotion and suicide prevention in older children.
