As of 1st August 2018, families can save on childcare fees in their first month of enrolment.

Cuddle’s Return to Work package is developed to support the federal government’s new Child Care Subsidy that commenced on 2nd July 2018 to encourage mums to get back to work.

The package offers families five free days of care that they can use in a period of one month, giving parents new to childcare an opportunity to experience the service before any major financial commitments.

“Parenting in the early years can already be a stressful time. We want to help mums return to work without having to go through any kind of anxiety in finding an early learning service that suits their needs”, says Cuddles CEO, Cliff Carver.

“This package removes the risk of mums having to pay full child care fees for days used before receiving their first pay cheque.”

To ensure children transition smoothly into the service, the package requires families to book in a minimum of two days per week in the first month.

Families who enrol before the end of October 2018, will enter a draw to win a family package worth $500.

Cuddles Childcare Centre have early learning services located in Carlisle, St James, Bertram, South Lake and one opening in Two Rocks at the end of October.

To find out more please contact the Centre near you.

To sweeten the deal, BubDesk is offering two free BubDesk office days for families who take up the Return to Work Package, allowing nursing mums to work productively onsite with your baby close by.

*Terms and conditions apply.
**BubDesk is available in Cuddles St James
