The Child Care Financial Integrity Strategy helps you to make sure that you, your employees and educators meet all obligations under National Law and Family Assistance Law.
Child Care Financial Integrity Strategy
The Child Care Financial Integrity Strategy helps providers to ensure child care funding is properly administered by:
- Detailing the principles that help make fair and consistent decisions in financial integrity matters
- Outlining the department's expectations and potential intervention responses
- Helping providers, services, educators and families to gain the necessary skills and knowledge to comply with the law
If you have any questions about child care financial integrity, email email@example.com.
Child Care Enforcement Action Register
The Child Care Enforcement Action Register contains:
- A list of services that have been penalised for breaking the law
- Details about each service and the reason for imposing the penalty
Help us keep the system fair
Help us ensure child care payments are:
- Only made to those who are entitled to receive them
- Not provided to people who 'accidentally' or intentionally set out to exploit the system
If you think a child care service or an individual is doing the wrong thing or is trying to get an unfair advantage, please contact us – you don't even have to give us your name:
- Call 1800 664 231
- Send an email to TipoffLine@dese.gov.au
