What you need to know about the new Child Care Package

The new Childcare funding package is now effective, as of Monday 2 July 2018. We are sorry that Zest Care (formally known as Sydney In Home Care and Illawarra In Home Care) will no longer be an approved In-Home Care Service Provider under the Government’s In Home Child Care Program.

This will obviously have an impact on our Educarers, but we are pleased to be able to offer you alternative job opportunities with us. Please read on for more details.

We know this is a difficult time for you, and we are totally committed to making sure the impacts of this Government decision on your family are minimised as much as possible. We will also continue to provide services to your family until the In-Home Care Support Agency can transition you to another service or up to 6 weeks, 12th August 2018 (whichever occurs first).

We want to work with every family that currently receives this service to try to find the best alternative arrangements for you. Please read on for more information.
