Child care support and changing lockdown restrictions in NSW and Victoria

COVID-19 lockdown restrictions have eased in most of regional Victoria and will do so in parts of New South Wales.

We are monitoring the changes and will let providers and services know next week how they impact Australian Government support for early childhood services.

There is no need for providers and services to call the CCS Helpdesk or request a change of circumstance form for business continuity payments because they are no longer in a COVID hotspot – we are monitoring lockdowns.

We will be in touch soon with more information.

Our email newsletter and COVID-19 webpage are the best ways to stay up to date.

If you don’t already, subscribe to our Early Childhood and Child Care newsletter.

We also ask providers to check their contact details are correct in the Child Care Subsidy System via the Provider Entry Point or their third-party software.
