Childcare costs to ease for Aussie families
250,000 families with at least two kids are set to benefit from a $1.7 billion package to subsidise childcare.
From July 2022, the childcare subsidy for families with two or more children aged five and under will increase to a maximum of 95 per cent.
Goodstart Early Learning advocacy manager, John Cherry, told Gareth Parker it will make a huge difference for families.
“A family who has two or more children on an income of around $110,000 a year … they will be saving about $95 a week from July 2022,” he said.
“This will make a big difference.”
