Affordable Care and Education

The service receives Start Strong Funding which aims to improve affordability of early childhood education and increase the number of children participating for 600 hours in a quality early childhood education program in the year prior to school. 

Families that hold a Health Care card, Pension card or who identify as ATSI receive additional equity funding to reduce barriers to preschool access where the child is aged 3 or over.

3 year old children( non –equity) receive a percentage of the base rate which is calculated on the services SEIFA band ( Socio-Economic Index for Area).
