Goodstart helping families to reduce their out of pocket costs

Goodstart Early Learning has launched more flexible options to help families make the most of the new Child Care Subsidy. New 9 and 10 hour sessions, in addition to the ‘all day’ session, will help reduce the risk of families running out of subsided eligible hours and paying full fees. Goodstart Early Learning Advocacy Manager John Cherry said the new flexible options were designed to better meet families’ needs.

This means they are behind their peers in one or more domain(s) of social, emotional, language and cognitive, communication and general knowledge, or physical development. The evidence shows that children who start behind tend to stay behind.
