Child Care

Child care has many different service types available, with Long Day Care and Family Day Care being the most frequently used.

Most Long Day Care and Family Day Care centres are approved child care services. This means that families using the service may be eligible for Child Care Benefits and the Child Care Rebate. Approved services must also meet their obligations under the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and Care and comply with the Early Childhood Services Education and Care National Law and National Regulations, and any other applicable state and territory regulations, when providing care to children. 

Where demand for child care is high, all approved services must adhere to Priority of Access Guidelines to ensure there is a fair child care system. The system ensures that, where there are vacancies or a waiting list for child care services, places are allocated to families with the greatest need for child care.
