Increase to Child Care Benefit from July 20151 Jul 2015 - 11:00
Australian families will receive more Government child care fee assistance following the indexation of the child care rates.
The Government will provide almost $40 billion over the next four years to help Australian families with the cost of child care and early learning.
This reflects an increase of $3.5 billion in funding to support the implementation of the Child Care Assistance Package which will help assist families with their child care costs.
