Child Care — Quality Improvement Funding Support
If you own or operate an approved child day care facility, you can apply for funding to increase the wages of your permanent employees. You could get $2.75 or $3.15 per hour for untrained staff, and up to $5.00 per hour for employees who have a recognized diploma in Early Childhood Education or a university degree.
You must have a Certificate of Approval by March 31 and apply by April 10. Newly approved facilities with infant spaces can apply after the deadline.
Other conditions apply.
