The state government childcare centre funding to be rolled out shortly.
The Department of Education has been working with local government representatives to ensure the NSW Government’s $82 million funding package for council-run childcare centres is rolled out and payments made efficiently to best meet the needs of service providers.
NSW was the first State to bridge the funding gap for council-run early childhood services.
This new model of funding and its design and therefore delivery will take time. Clarification from the Commonwealth on aspects of the JobKeeper model and how that would impact council childcare centres was also required before finalising the model.
Payments for the first three-month period will be made as a one-off lump sum in June. Payments will be backdated to April 6. This simple and practical solution was worked through with representatives from local government.
