“Child care (Before, After and Vacation Care) will be made available for FREE for families during the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced.”
Around one million families are set to receive free care during the coronavirus pandemic under a plan from the Morrison Government that will help deliver hip pocket relief and help the before & after school and vacation care sectors make it through to the other side of this crisis.
From the week beginning 6 April 2020 until the week ending 28 June 2020 (with a potential further 3 months extension), parents will be able to send their children for free to any operating TeamKids service.
This package will help support families during these difficult times.
Yes! The Prime Minister also clarified that there is “no risk to children going to school or child care” based on clear and consistent advice that the government has received.
At TeamKids, the health and safety of the children and our team is our top priority. We have implemented specific COVID-19 risk minimisation plans for our services and will be strictly enforcing our Illness and Infectious Diseases policy.
Simply book in as you usually would and you will immediately be eligible.
Quite simply, EVERYONE. As per the guidelines, we will prioritise enrollments for the parents who need it most – parents still working, parents who are struggling to provide safe care for their kids at home, vulnerable children, THEN parents who have already taken their kids out of care and finally parents who hadn’t previously had their kids in child care.
