Let's make a plan

for the



Child Care



To begin, please select which option best describes you:

The amount of the new Child Care Subsidy you will be entitled to from 1 July 2019 will depend on three key things:

  • How much ‘recognised’ activity you and your partner undertake each fortnight. The entitlement is based on the lesser activity figure for a member of a couple.
  • What your combined family income is.
  • The child care fees you pay (hourly rate caps apply for each service type).
  • This estimator does not take into account that Goodstart does not charge for public holidays.
