Over 5,300 families in Dunkley will be better off from the Federal Coalition Government’s child care overhaul.
Mr Chris Crewther MP, Federal Member for Dunkley, said the new child care package will provide the greatest hours of support to the families who work the longest hours, and the greatest subsidy and financial support to the families who earn the least.
“We know the cost pressures that families face so we’ve taken action to overhaul a broken system,” said Mr Crewther.
“Families using child care in Dunkley should be reassured that relief is around the corner.”
Minister for Education and Training, Senator the Hon. Simon Birmingham said the child care changes are focused on helping the families that need it most.
“Almost one million families will benefit from our additional $2.5 billion investment and comprehensive changes to the subsidy system, our new hourly rate cap to put downward pressure on fee increases and the end of the $7,613 annual rebate cap,” Minister Birmingham said.
“With 1.15 million Australian families set to access child care next year it’s important families have the opportunity to plan for the changes.
“I urge families to visit our child care estimator, plug in their details and see exactly how they’re set to benefit.”
