Child Care News for Parents & Carers
November 6, 2019
Welcome, this week how to get a Customer Reference Number and why you should. Also, are you a victim of technoference?
Why you need a Customer Reference Number for child care & how to get one
If your child is starting in an early education and care service in 2020, now is the time to get some administrative affairs in order. You’ll need to enrol in a quality child care service, settling on a start date and ongoing days, ensure your child is up-to-date with their vaccinations, and also consider fees.

The government helps many families with the cost of child care, but before you receive any assistance, you must establish whether you're eligible for the Child Care Subsidy, and if so, make a claim.

A Centrelink Customer Reference Number (CRN) is needed to enrol in a child care service and receive the Child Care Subsidy, so let’s look at what a CRN entails.
How 'technoference'
impacts modern families
On one level, mobile devices are absolutely brilliant. They put a world of information in the palm of your hand, connect you with others and are an easy way to pass the time.

However, just as children shouldn't have too much screen time, there are concerns that prolific use of digital devices by parents is having a negative impact on family relationships and children's behaviour.

Here, we look at some research around 'technoference' and see how parents can reduce digital distractions and focus instead on family connections.
