Child Care Subsidy
There is a Child Care Subsidy Program to assist low and middle income families with child care costs. Contact the MCFD for more information on this one. If you are eligible for the Child Care Subsidy and have a child designated with special needs, you may be eligible for the Special Needs Supplement. This may provide up to $150 per month towards the cost of the space fee.
For more information view the Child Care Subsidy FAQs sheet.
What is the cut-off point?
Good question. The government doesn’t publish this number. Visit the Child Care Subsidy Eligibility Evaluator to determine if you are eligible.
