Child care services are only purchasable if eligible under section 60(2)(c) of the Transport Accident Act 1986 and can only be funded and purchased up to a maximum of five years after your transport accident.
Child care services refer to duties and tasks that relate to the direct care of a child, such as feeding and bathing, which you performed prior to the transport accident. These services replace the care and supervision of a child when you have sustained injuries that prevent or limit the normal provision of these services.
You should ensure that your child care provider/s are:
- compliant with the National Best Practice Standards, and
- regulated by either Commonwealth or State governments (with the exception of in home care services which are regulated and monitored by local councils), and
- holders of, or employ staff who are holders of, a current assessment notice pursuant to the Working With Children Act 2005 (Victoria).
