Education licence fee waived

EARLY childhood education and care services in areas hard-hit by recent flooding and cyclones could be eligible to have their licence fees waived or refunded by the State Government.

Education Minister Cameron Dick said the long-term impact of the floods across Queensland and Tropical Cyclone Yasi in north Queensland were putting some child care operators under pressure.

“This year operators can apply for a waiver or refund of the $300 licence renewal fee or the $50 licence replacement fee,” Mr Dick said.

The amendment of the Child Care Regulation 2003 will allow child-care licensing fees to be waived or refunded where there is demonstrated hardship. Child-care licencees can contact their local DET regional office from Monday, April 4. Details can be accessed on http://education.qld.gov.au.
