Around one million families are set to receive free child care during the coronavirus pandemic under a plan from the Morrison Government that will help deliver relief and support to the early childhood education and care industry.

On 30 March 2020, the Federal Government announced the introduction of the JobKeeper Payment package.

Early Childhood Services and OOSH Centers fear they may never recover from the coronavirus crisis as 4 out of 5 services are on the brink of collapse and both sectors told they have to wait for financial relief from the government with they are forced to shut down.

If you're running a Family Day Care service that needs to close or if you have to reduce your business activities due to Coronavirus you may be able to receive support from a variety of different sources. These include Coronavirus Supplement, Early Access To Superannuation, Mortgage and Loan Repayments and more.

Before parents lose government subsidies on childcare fees, young children are given an extra 20 days of absences, as part of the government's response to coronavirus.
