Child care fee assistance is changing from 2 July 2018, with the introduction of the Australian Government's New Child Care Package which includes a Child Care Subsidy to replace the current Child Care Benefit and Rebate. There are also changes to the annual subsidy cap which will make child care more affordable for most families.

To equip ELC and OSHC families with information regarding the upcoming changes, webcast information sessions will be held on three separate dates so that families can choose a time that best suits to view the webcast.
