You can get up to 20 hours during term time and up to 50 hours during school holidays.
How much you get depends on:
- the size of your family
- your income
- how many hours a week your child goes to the childcare provider.
If you don’t know how many hours of care you’ll need each week (eg, you’re a casual or on-call worker) we’ll talk with you about your options when you apply.
Payments would be made directly to sKids and start from the date the care starts (or from the date you apply if you apply after it starts).
