With a new child care subsidy on the way, If you are passionate about working with children, this is the perfect time to become a Child Care Educator and start a fulfilling career.
Australia has recently announced that from 10 July 2023, a new child care subsidy will be available to make child care more affordable for families. Most families using child care will get more subsidy and additionally, families that were previously not eligible for CCS, will now get it. This means that there will be an increased demand for qualified educators in the child care sector.
Despite the great news, the Child Care industry is concerned. Many businesses are already operating at a much lower occupancy, despite the demand from families, because they are facing a significant skill shortage in the sector. As a result, parents will face longer waiting lists once the new subsidy comes into effect.
After July 2023, as more families seek child care services for their children, the sector that was already booming with hundreds of employment opportunities, will need qualified educators more than ever
