Find out how much you will save with Labor’s cheaper child care policy.


This figure is an estimate of additional support through the child care subsidy to assist families in understanding the impact of Labor’s Cheaper Child Care policy.

It is based on the hourly rate cap for Centre Based Day Care and a comparison between Labor‘s policy and the government’s current subsidy and taper rates. The proposed changes would apply from 1 July 2022 if Labor is successful in forming government at the next election.

The current Liberal subsidy includes the annual subsidy cap. Labor will remove the annual cap. The calculator assumes the activity test requirements have been met.
