New sessional care option for families in Toowoomba

Samfya Smith - Wednesday, July 04, 2018

How has the new Child Care Subsidy impacted you?


If you are one of the thousands of families who has had their subsidised hours reduced under the new system, then we may have a solution for you.

In order to continue to meet the needs of our families and maximise the number of days that children can attend care each fortnight, we are introducing sessional care at our two Toowoomba centres: Kath Dickson Education and Care Centre and Kath Dickson Occasional Care Centre

Families will now have the option to access care in 3, 6 or 9 hour time blocks, rather than automatically being charged for a full 11 hour day. 

This provides greater flexibility for a wide range of our families and ensures that children will continue to have access to our quality education and care programs.

We will work with you to find the optimal schedule for you and your family's needs. 

Need to increase your hours for the activity test? We also have volunteering opportunities throughout the Kath Dickson Family Centre organisation.

Find out more in the Fact Sheet: Sessional Care or give us a call on 07 4633 8400.
