Children in care are provided with a safe yet stimulating environment where the setting looks and feels like home. At the same time they are participating in programmed activities to help challenge and enhance their abilities. The activities are planned to meet the different ages or levels of ability of the children in care as the mixed aged group can range from infancy to school age years.
Little Bugs provides "approved care" which can entitle parents to child care benefit (CCB). Little Bugs manages and process all child care benefit claims on behalf of the parents via the Governments Child Care Management System.(CCMS)
Fees sets by the educator vary but on average range from $6-$8 per hour.
Parents should consult the family Assistance Office (www.familyassist.gov.au) for details of their specific entitlements to CCB.
