Extending childcare when your child turns 5
If your child turns 5 and doesn't start school straight away, we may be able to pay for an extra 4 weeks of childcare.
Who can extend their childcare payments
This applies only if you're already getting Childcare Subsidy payments from us. We'll look at each situation case by case.
If you receive Child Disability Allowance we may be able to pay for your childcare payments until your child turns 6 if that's when they start school.
