The Government supports many families with a child care subsidy and families can earn a surprising amount and still receive a subsidy. To check if you may be eligible phone 0800 599 099 or click to find out if you qualify for child care assistance:
Childcare subsidy is dependent on family situation, income and hours worked/studied. There are 5 tier rates of subsidy available and WINZ will let you know which one you qualify for.It is a good idea to apply 3-4 weeks before you need your subsidy to start as WINZ cannot backdate payments.
Most families qualify for 9 hours for under two year olds. You don’t even have to be working or in study to be eligible.
