Early Steps Child Care Centre has high quality child care professionals and assistants who have special skills and talents to observe and respond to the child’s needs, interests and developmental.
The curriculum is play-based, and the programmes are based on building relationships with the whole child – aiming to meet the diverse individual needs by assisting children to develop their physical self, thinking and communicating self, social development, arts and creativity, design and technology, diversity and understanding of the world around them. We view the early years as one of the most vital times of a person’s life. Early childhood is important in that it is the time when children gain the essential skills, knowledge and dispositions critical for success in life.
Child Care Subsidy
The centrepiece of the package is the Child Care Subsidy. When the Child Care Subsidy commences in July 2018, it will:
- replace the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) with a single, means‑tested subsidy
- be paid directly to service providers to be passed on to families
- be simpler than the current multi-payment system
- be better targeted and provide more assistance to low and middle income families.
