Over 3,800 families in Barker will be better off from the Coalition Government’s child care overhaul.
Member for Barker 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 Pasin.
“Families using child care in Barker should be reassured that relief is around the corner.”
Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham said the child care changes are focused on helping the families that need it most, Minister Birmingham said.
“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.”
