For students who are parents, who don’t know about or are looking for childcare options that cater for a variety of care types, here’s a link to the Australian Government’s childcare finder www.childcarefinder.gov.au.
After searching for your town you’ll see the filter to the left of screen that allows you to search by “Service Type” and “Types”. These include, centre-based day care, family day care, in home care, before and after school, full and half day sessions and by the hour.
Students may be eligible for Commonwealth government subsidies through Centrelink. The LTSA offers free financial counselling sessions to La Trobe students that may help you navigate what Centrelink options are available to you.
