If I am no longer eligible for the extended 15 hours, what happens next?

If I am no longer eligible for the extended 15 hours, what happens next?
  • If a family falls out of the eligibility criteria for the extended 15 hours, or they do not confirm their eligibility every 3 months, a 'grace period' of funding will then commence from when eligibility has ended. The 'grace period' is an extra period that parents will continue to receive the full 30 hours so they can resolve the issue of why they have dropped out of eligibility, i.e. seek employment or reconfirming eligibility.
  • After the grace period has ended and the parents are still not eligible, the child will then revert to being able to claim a maximum of 15 hours per week
  • The extended hours cannot be claimed if a child moves or starts at a new childcare setting and is already in the grace period for the extended hours. Families will only be eligible for the universal 15 hours.
