How Much Does In Home Care cost?

  • Our educators are all independent contractors who set their own fees within our recommended range of $25-$30 per hour.
  • Your total fee is reduced by the amount of Child Care Subsidy (CCS) or Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS) a family can receive.
  • In addition to this, we charge a $6 per hour operational levy.
  • When you are approved to use our service, a one-off registration fee of $60 (non-refundable) will be requested. 

Did you know that In Home Care families are eligible for the government's Child Care Subsidy (CCS) or even Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS)? Which means you could be paying a single-digit fee per hour or nothing!
