The government provides 20 ECE hours a week for all children over three years of age.  

Of course, there are conditions (eg. a max of 6 hours a day), but this is not based on how much you earn, or whether you work outside the home, etc. 

Our Centre fees are based on a daily rate. For 3 to 5 year olds, the 20 ECE hours are included in this daily rate.  

You may also be eligible for the Childcare Subsidy, however families getting 20 hours Early Childhood Education (ECE) can't get the Childcare Subsidy for the same hours. Check what you might get here.
