Family Tax Benefit (FTB) is a trusted, well-known and equitable mechanism and measurement tool used by the Australian Government to help low-to-middle income families.
It is means tested and helps ensure government subsidies are provided to families who need them most to help with the cost of raising a child.
Alignment to the Australian Government's FTB ensures the Queensland Government is helping families on low- to middle-incomes with the cost of raising children and sending them to kindergarten.
Families eligible for FTB will receive a subsidy of up to $3,544 a year if enrolled in a sessional kindergarten and $500 a year for kindy in a long day care. Families may also access the Australian Government's Child Care Subsidy (CCS) to reduce their kindy fees. Read more about the
