The Child Care Financial Integrity Strategy (Integrity Strategy) summarises the Australian Government’s approach to ensuring child care funding is being properly administered by providers, services and educators.
The Integrity Strategy will help you understand the Australian Government’s expectations, potential intervention responses and the assistance they provide to help providers, services, family day care educators and families gain the necessary skills and knowledge to comply with the law.
Resources to help you comply with the Family Assistance Law
There are a range of resources to help Family Day Care educators comply with the rules, including:
A series of educational mini videos to help you understand your obligations under Family Assistance Law.
Child Care Provider Handbook: a guide to the requirements and responsibilities of early learning and child care providers, services and educators approved under Family Assistance Law.
The Australian Government has implemented laws to stop ‘child swapping’ in Family Day Care services. These changes affect approved Family Day Care services and educators entitled to child care payments if their child is enrolled for care in an approved Family Day Care service.
