Changes to Legislation – Exemption Application Form FDC Cross Border Operations

This application form is designed for Family Day Care services which are located in or near a cross-border town and are seeking to be exempted from the new eligibility rule. An amendment was made to the Family Assistance Law on 3 December 2014 to require that Family Day Care services must ensure that their educators provide sessions of care only within the state or territory in which the service has a service approval granted by the relevant Regulatory Authority under the Education and Care Services National Law.
