Government Rebates

JEMs operates as an approved after school Care (Yeshiva OSCH) allowing you to receive generous government benefits, specifically the child care subsidy which can cover up to 85% of the fees (droping JEMs fees to as low as $11 per day).

The amount you are eligible for will depend on your income and activity test. For more details please visit:  www.education.gov.au/childcare

In order to receive the payments, we will need you to fill in the CRN numbers and other relevant information on our enrolment form or they can be provided to us at a later date via email.

If you are not certain whether you are registered for these payments, please contact the Department of Human Services (Centrelink) on 136150 or login through mygov and state that you have a school aged child who will be attending an approved vacation care.

Please note: As of July 2018 the “Child Care Subsidy” has replaced the “Child Care Benefit” & Child Care Rebate”. The new payments are means tested (the upper limit is around 350k family income to still be eligible) with some families receiving a higher amount then before and some a lower amount then before and some not eligible. To check your eligibility and estimate your payment amount visit: www.education.gov.au/ChildCarePackage

In order to receive the government payments you will need to approve your child’s enrolment in our service (Yeshiva OSHC) via your MyGov account or the Centrelink APP (once we have submitted the enrolment about a week before start of term).

Current JEMs children who have attended a session of care within the 8 weeks prior to start of term will not need to do this step.
