Child Care News for Parents & Carers
October 10, 2018
Welcome, this week a close look at the Additional Child Care Subsidy (Grandparents) and today, 10 October is World Mental Health Day, and we spoke with Australian Association for Infant Mental representative Meredith Banks to learn how parents can support mental wellbeing in young children.
How the Additional Child Care Subsidy helps grandparents
Grandparent care is widespread in Australia, and although some grandparents offer occasional care, emergency care or part-time care, there are others who play a larger role in the day-to-day raising of their grandchildren.

In recognition of this, the Additional Child Care Subsidy (Grandparent) is a payment that supports eligible grandparents by reducing the financial burden of child care. It has replaced the Grandparent Child Care Benefit (as of July 2018) and here are its main features.
Considering the mental health of babies and young children
Today, 10 October, is World Mental Health Day, and with one in five Australians affected by mental illness, this is a valuable time to reflect on the mental health of all ages, including the very young.

To better understand the mental health needs of small children, we spoke with Meredith Banks, representative of the Association for Infant Mental Health.
