Your government-funded child care rebate is something you are entitled to. It is there to provide your children with the best quality education possible, from 6 weeks old, until they go to preschool.
As something that every Australian is entitled to, you should ask yourself, “how can I make my child care rebate work harder for my child and I?”. The answer is fairly simple, ensure that you are getting the best child care services available.
The answer is fairly simple: ensure that you are getting the best child care services available.
A child care centre that is offering standard services, standard facilitates and educators that are just there to earn a wage will take the same amount of your rebate as a high quality and full-service centre.
So let’s think about that for a moment, your child could go to a school with custom build facilities, green space, outdoor play areas, top-quality teachers and extracurricular activities.
Alternatively, they could be cared for in someone’s makeshift home daycare centre, with a TV and a few toys.
Both of these options would receive the same amount of government funding from you – the question is, which would you prefer your children to attend?
Your child care rebate is something as a taxpayer, you have paid for, you are entitled to and you should leverage to the best of your abilities.

You may have childcare that is close to your home in Western Sydney or The Hills, but is it really the most convenient?
You could consider a child care centre that is closer to your work, allowing you more time to meet your work commitments and not have to rush off through traffic to pick up your child? This may open many additional centres, with more facilities, staff and services that could assist in your child’s development?
