Applications are now open for the Nanny Pilot Programme Families struggling to access child care and who require more flexible arrangements can now apply to participate in the Australian Governmentâ€™s new Nanny Pilot Programme.
The two-year pilot will begin in 2016 and provide fee assistance to help eligible families with the cost of using a nanny in their family home. This is a great opportunity for parents, particularly those who live away from existing child care, or who work non-standard hoursâ€”like police officers, nurses, firefighters and other emergency workers, or those in the hospitality industry.
Families are eligible if they earn less than $250,000, both parents (or in the case of a sole parent family, the sole parent) work, train or study at least eight hours a fortnight, and at least one parent is an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Families have until 5pm AEDT on 30 October 2015 to apply. To find out whether youâ€™re eligible and to apply, go to the Department of Social Serviceâ€™s website.
