Under Scott Morrison, child care is too expensive.

For working families, household budgets are tighter than ever.

Real wages are going backwards, the cost of petrol and power bills are skyrocketing, and childcare costs are always going up.

Australians pay some of the highest child care costs in the world. In fact, fees have increased more than 39 per cent under the Liberals.

Jerome wants a better future for you and your family.

Our policies:

  • Lift the maximum child care subsidy rate to 90 per cent for families for the first child in care.
  • Increase child care subsidy rates for every family with one child in care earning less than $530,000 in household income.
  • Keep higher child care subsidy rates for the second and additional children in care.
  • Extend the increased subsidy to outside school hours care.


How much your family will benefit with Labor’s plan

Labor’s higher subsidy for the first child in care means all families up to $530,000 in household income will be better off. Families with two or more children will continue to receive a higher subsidy rate for second and subsequent children, or the rates above, whichever is higher.

Are you wanting to contribute to the change that Australia needs?

The Liberal Party need Bennelong, but they’re so convinced that they don’t need to work for it that they’re giving the seat away to their friends in other electorates rather than choosing a local who knows the heart of Bennelong.

But Jerome isn’t the only local who knows the heart of Bennelong – YOU do too. It’s not just your vote we need to make the change, we also need you. We need you to volunteer wherever and however you can. If you wan’t to explore how you can help, Please sign up as a volunteer today, together we can make the change!
