Many thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding as we all learn this new skill set that is the “Childcare Subsidy”!!!
Busy Days at Young Discoverers!
Well it has been a whirlwind of activity within Young Discoverers! We are thrilled to finally have “opened for business” at Emmanuel College, providing Before and After School Care for the Emmanuel Community!
At Emmanuel College the OSHC rooms have been totally refurbished with a fresh new coat of paint and new carpets! Add to that a good clean up of existing resources together with a large new toy & resource order and the attending children’s eyes nearly popped out of their heads when they first entered! We are super excited by this opportunity and look forward to supporting the Emmanuel families in the same way we support ALL of our families!
The transition across to the new Childcare Subsidy has been somewhat challenging but we are getting there! Remember to ensure that you log in to your “MyGov” account and confirm Young Discoverers as your childcare provider if you still have that task on your “to do” list! Some “crinkles” are still being ironed out by the Department of Education and Training and Centrelink but it has been a huge change on many different levels so thank you for your patience and assistance! We are very appreciative!
As always, we are here to help, so always feel free to give us a call should you have any queries, questions or concerns!

The new “Child Care Package” is coming in July 2018
The year 2017 is fast coming to a close and it is now that we start looking forward to the New Year and what is in store for 2018!
An important consideration for you will be the Government’s New Child Care Package which commences on 2 July 2018.
Under the new package, the existing Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate will be replaced by a new Child Care Subsidy.
The amount of subsidy that families will receive will be based on three things:
1. their combined family income
2. the level of ‘approved’ activity they undertake
3. the type of child care service they use.
The easiest way to work out how much subsidy you may be eligible for is through the Family Child Care Subsidy Estimator which is available here …
It’s easy to use and only takes a few minutes to fill out.
As we receive more information and come to understand the new processes we will of course share this so that you too can understand!
