Update from the Government
The Federal Government made another release regarding the Financial Stimulus for the economy, this time relating to the Child Care Sector.
The announcement will assist many families when it comes to childcare while they are still working, many on the frontline, and will most definitely bring relief to the childcare sector. It is great to see the childcare sector being recognised as an essential service to support professionals who are still working. Given there has been a significant decrease in children attending childcare since early March, the decision to set an earlier benchmark is a welcome one.

Does the money come to me, or directly to the childcare centre?
The money goes to your child's centre and is 50 per cent of its revenue up to the existing hourly rate cap, based on the enrolment numbers before parents began pulling children out of centres.
The funding will apply from April 6 and only childcare centres who remain open and who do not charge parents for care will be eligible.
The payments will be paid instead of Child Care (CCS) and Additional Child Care Subsidy payments.

Dromana Community House is committed to supporting our community in responding to the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).
Under Federal Government restrictions, neighbourhood houses/community centres have been forced to close their doors to the public.
It was with regret volunteers have had to hang up their hats and aprons and take a short break, stay tuned with our Facebook page and newsletters as we start to reconnect!
Some essential neighbourhood house activities are able to continue, provided the appropriate measures of social distancing and hygiene are in place:
Occasional Childcare and our food relief programs are still operating
Second Bite Food Program - Ending Waste. Ending Hunger. provides fresh food for those in need on Thursdays from 10 am - come along and pick up a bag or two!
