Connected Beginnings

Summary: 

Connected Beginnings is an element of the Community Child Care Fund under the Commonwealth Government’s Jobs for Families  Child Care Package. From  July 2016,  $20 million over two years is available for the program to support the integration of early childhood, maternal and child health, and family support services with schools in a selected number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities experiencing disadvantage so that children are well prepared for school.

Budget Based Funded Program

Summary: 

The Budget Based Funded (BBF) Program provides a contribution to the operational costs of approximately 300 child care and early learning and school aged care services in a limited number of approved locations. These services are predominantly located in regional, remote and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities where the market would otherwise fail to deliver services to meet the needs of children and their families. Many are the sole providers of child care in their communities.
