As taken from the Government’s Information sheets for child care providers and services updated regularly – when a service has to close due to COVID-19, under Family Assistance Law, attendance reports cannot be submitted into the Child Care Subsidy System as services are unable to provide sessions of care. Families must also not be charged fees. If you close your service, either voluntarily or as advised, you must notify your state or territory regulatory authority within 24 hours.
