February Newsletter 2022

Welcome to the second edition of our Community Connections Newsletter. It has been an absolute pleasure spending the past month getting to know all of our children and their interests. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our families back into the centre for pickups and drop offs! As of Monday, the 14th of February all families will begin dropping off their children and picking them up in our outdoor spaces. To continue to minimise the risk of the spread of Covid 19 we ask that all parents enter through reception and walk through to our outdoor space. If your child is in the Nursery an educator will meet you at their door and take them inside for you. If your child is in Junior preschool, Preschool 1, Preschool 2 or Prep we ask that you please drop off into the outdoor space. Masks are still required to be worn when entering the service.

Higher Child Care Subsidy is coming soon

If you have more than one child aged 5 or under in care, you may soon get a higher Child Care Subsidy (CCS).

From 7 March 2022, your family’s CCS may increase if you:

•          earn less than$354,305

Services Australia has information for families on their website, including:

•          who will get the higher subsidy

•          how much the higher subsidy is

•          when you’ll get the higher subsidy

•          what you need todo

•          examples that show how the higher CCS may work for your family.
