Our Government’s Child Care reforms are driving down out-of-pocket costs for parents across the community, Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said.
“Since our Child Care Subsidy was introduced on 2 July 2018, out-of-pocket Child Care costs for families had reduced by 10.4 per cent,” he said.
“We are providing record funding and greater support to families in our community as part of our new Child Care Package, including the Child Care Subsidy.
“The Government’s Child Care Subsidy ensures local families who are earning the least and working the most are supported in accessing the Child Care they need.
“Since the introduction of our new Child Care Subsidy on 2 July 2018, we have seen the largest quarterly fall in Child Care prices in a decade.
“These reforms are leaving more dollars in the pockets of families, which we can afford to do because we’re keeping our economy strong.”
