Early Learning Fee Relief

by | Jul 8, 2024 | Community, Education, Politics | 0 comments

Up to 200,000 families across the State are set to benefit from the largest ever investment in early education fee relief, according to The Minns Labor Government.

With cost-of-living pressures continuing to affect growing families, the State Government has allocated $430 million in fee relief, including up to $4220 a year for 3-5 yr olds attending eligible community and mobile preschools, up to $2110 a year for children aged 4 and above attending eligible pre school programs in long day care services, and up to $500 a year for 3 yr olds attending eligible pre school programs in long day care services, on top of their Child Care Subsidy payment.

The fee relief is part of the Government’s $1.82 billion investment into early education and care as part of the 2024-25 NSW Budget.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Education and Early Learning Prue Car says attending  preschool is vital for the educational outcomes of children, setting in place the building blocks for success later in life, and that it is critically important, particularly during a cost-of-living crisis, that all parents are able to access high-quality affordable preschool for their children.
