Mother's Day Afternoon
At Kookaburra we have certain pre-planned events that happen at the Centre. One of those events is our Mother's Day afternoon. The aim of this event is to provide the special women in each child's life the oportunity to come into the Centre and spend some quality time in our learning environments with the little people who mean the most to them. We encourage not just Mums but Grandmas, Aunties, Friends, Cousins and any special women in a childs life to attend. We offer a range of fun activities for the children to engage in with their visitor and provide some light refrseshments such as scones with jam and cream, coffee and tea.

Every year Kookaburra host our Eat Street event. Each room chooses a culture and prepares a traditional meal to share with our Kookaburra families. The rooms also make their stalls out of recyclable products from around our Centre to encourage sustainability. Families and friends are invited to attend the Centre and partake in the delicious foods on offer. This is a wonderful community event which encourages families to participate in our program.

Child Care Subsidy Estimator

From 2 July 2018, there will be a New Child Care Package.The Package will help parents with children aged 0 to 13 work, train, study and volunteer. The Package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. It will be paid directly to services.

Annual subsidy cap
Families earning $186,958 or less will have no cap on the amount of Child Care Subsidy they can claim. Families earning over $186,958 and under $351,248 will benefit from an increase in the current cap of $7,613 to $10,190 per child, per year.

Three things will determine a family's level of Child Care Subsidy:
1. Combined family income

2. Activity level of parents

3. Type of child care service
