Driving down the cost of child care on the Sunshine Coast
The Morrison Government’s reforms to child care are driving down out-of-pocket costs for families on the Sunshine Coast.
Federal Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace said that since our Government’s Child Care Subsidy was introduced on 2 July 2018, out-of-pocket child care costs for families had reduced by 10.4 per cent. 5,795 families in the Federal Electorate of Fisher are estimated to have been affected by the changes.
“The Morrison Government is providing record funding and greater support to families on the Sunshine Coast as part of its new Child Care Package, including the Child Care Subsidy,” Mr Wallace said.
“Our Government’s Child Care Subsidy ensures families on the Sunshine Coast earning the least and working the most are supported to access the child care they need.
“Since the introduction of our Government’s new Child Care Subsidy on 2 July 2018, we have seen the largest quarterly fall in child care prices in a decade.
“The Morrison Government’s child care reforms are leaving more dollars in the pockets of the Sunshine Coast’s families, which we can afford to do because we’re keeping our economy strong.
“Labor cannot be trusted with child care. When they were in Government, Labor allowed child care fees to skyrocket by more than 50 per cent.”
