The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) is a not-for-profit, member-funded organisation advocating for the future of Australia's children.
We work on behalf of long day care owners and operators to ensure families and their children have an opportunity to access affordable, high quality early learning services throughout Australia.

If your family has already completed their Child Care Subsidy assessment, the person who has logged into MyGov and completed it on behalf of their family will be sent a notice of the outcome once Centrelink has finalised the assessment or claim.
If the family member has elected to receive their updates online, the letter will be sent to their MyGov inbox telling them if they are eligible and if so, informing them of the level of child care fee assistance they will receive.


The  Department of Education and Training has released an online version of the Child Care Provider Handbook (the Handbook) - available here.
