Natural Choice Early Learning - FDC understands placing your child into care (with a person you don't know) can be very overwhelming. There are many options out there and careful consideration is warranted as to what is best for your child/ren. Children learn through play & environments in family day care offer smaller groups of children (4 under school aged) where educators are able to have more time individually with each child and develop strong & nuturing bonds with families. We believe Natural Choice Early Learning - Family Day Care will become an extension of your home.
Applying for Child Care Subsidy
Anyone can apply to the Department of Human Services for Child Care Subsidy to help pay for the cost of care. The Department of Human Services provides confidential child care subsidy to families. Child Care Subsidy is the percentage of the cost of care that the government pays the Educator through the Service. If there is a gap between the percentage amount and the total fee, the parent pays the gap. If this gap is not paid, CCS will be discontinued until the debt is paid in full. Child Care Subsidy is payable for the hours of care used. Parents who receive CCS must notify Centrelink of any changes to their income or situation.
