Child Care News for Parents & Carers
November 18, 2020
Welcome, this week read new research from Canada, which demonstrates that boys who start child care early may have a higher chance of finishing high school. Also, today is World Guinness Record Day and we have an opportunity for you win a copy of the new book and we look at the preschool exemption to the CCS activity test.
New research says boys benefit from starting child care early
The early bird catches the worm, and when it comes to child care, recent research suggests that boys also reap the rewards of an early start.

A Canadian study has found that boys who begin daycare between the age of six months and 36 months have a better chance of finishing high school and do better economically when they grow up, compared to boys who start later or don't attend child care at all.

This is big news, so let's look at the study in more detail to see how early enrolment in child care can boost boys' prospects.
It's Guinness World Records Day – How to celebrate
For more than 60 years, people have been making and breaking Guinness World Records. There's a record for the world's longest legs, largest ball of lint, fastest marathon pushing a triple stroller, oldest bungee jumper, most voluminous lunchbox, longest line of rubber ducks and so much more!

Thousands of eye-boggling and truly astounding records are packed into the Guinness World Records book every year, and to celebrate these fantastic feats, November 18 has been designated as Guinness World Records Day.

This event is fun for all the family, so here are four ways to mark the day, make some memories and maybe even set a record!
What is the preschool exemption to the Child Care Subsidy activity test?
The activity test is a key part of the Child Care Subsidy, and it involves the government looking at you and your partner's hours of recognised activities (e.g. work and study) to determine how much subsidised care you’re eligible for, per child, per fortnight.

Some families receive up to 100 hours of subsidised care each fortnight, based on their activity level, but if your family is eligible for zero or 24 hours, then the 'preschool exemption' may be music to your ears.
