Jobs, Education and Training (JET) Child Care fee assistance provides extra help with the cost of Child Care Benefit approved child care to support parents while they undertake study, work, or job search activities. JET Child Care fee assistance is available to eligible parents who have an Employment Pathway Plan requiring them to undertake activities to help them enter or re-enter the workforce.
JET Child Care fee assistance can help meet the cost of child care by paying some of the 'gap fee' – the difference between the total fee charged and the amount covered by Child Care Benefit (CCB), for care related to JET Child Care fee assistance approved activities.
