Rebates and Benefits
Gan Izzy Vacation Care operate as an approved Vacation Care allowing you to receive generous government benefits.

 

From 2 July 2018, there will be a New Child Care Package, providing more support for more families.

 

The package includes a new  Child Care Subsidy , which replaces the current Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to services.

There are also changes to the annual cap which will make child care more affordable for most families.

Three things will determine a family's level of Child Care Subsidy:

  1. Combined family income
  2. Activity level of parents
  3. Type of child care service

Some basic requirements must be satisfied for an individual to be eligible to receive Child Care Subsidy for a child. These include:

  • the age of the child (must be 13 or under and not attending secondary school).
  • the child meeting immunisation requirements.
  • the individual, or their partner, meeting the residency requirements.
