ACA Response to Inquiry into Child Care Package (Child Care Subsidy)

The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) recently  welcomed the opportunity to contribute to the Inquiry into the Family Assistance Legislation  Amendment (Building on the Child Care Package) Bill 2019.
 
Over the course of the introduction to the new Child Care Subsidy, ACA has provided open and direct feedback to the government on behalf of its membership base, both directly and through the various reference groups. This direct engagement has allowed for the many and varied unintended consequences of this significant legislative change, which have affected a large number of stakeholders, to be addressed and resolved as quickly as possible.  
 
The proposed changes that the amendments bring to the Family Assistance Legislation are a positive step to improving some of the issues identified through the first twelve months of the Child Care Package
 
However there remains a bigger opportunity to build on and enhance the benefits of the Child Care Subsidy in the context of ensuring that every child in Australia has access to high quality, affordable and sustainable early learning services, and therefore the best start in life.
