It’s now even easier for families to find local services using the Find Child Care tool. Families can find service fees, vacancies, quality ratings and inclusions and save them to a shortlist to compare and use the contact details to progress a visit and find out about enrolling.

The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) Calculator tool has been streamlined and runs even faster to help families estimate the amount of CCS they are eligible for and their out-of-pocket costs.

The new testimonials from parents and carers published on the homepage share feedback and insights into quality children’s education and care and the ways helps families and children.

The new Resources section features even more information, enhanced search and navigation features and engaging video content: 

  • Attending a service resources provide information on our national regulatory system, service quality ratings, health and safety, educational programs, what to expect and transition to school.
  • Your child's development resources provide information about supporting your child's early years learning and development, parenting, health and safety.
