FamilyBoost is a childcare payment to help eligible households pay for the cost of early childhood education (ECE).

If you're eligible you will be able to claim up to 25% of your weekly childcare fees, or a maximum of $975 every 3-months. Childcare fees can include optional charges and services.

Claims for FamilyBoost are for the household, not for each individual child. 

FamilyBoost can be claimed for the following quarters:

  • July to September
  • October to December
  • January to March
  • April to June.

What you will be able to get is based on what you earn.
