The New National Childcare Scheme will launch the 20th November.

The subsidy will be available for children from 24 weeks to 15 years of age and there will be universal subsidy and an income assessed subsidy available to families.

To apply for the subsidy parents will have to have a verified MyGovID account and a public services card.
