“Childcare fees have risen 7 per cent on average over the past decade, well above indexation, meaning that childcare payments are already losing real value over time,” she said. “These changes will put pressure on low and middle income families.”

Greens childcare spokeswoman Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said the government should be pumping money into childcare, not making cuts. “Ripping more than $200 million out of the pockets of Australian mums and dads is not the way to fix our nation’s broken childcare system,” she said.

The Greens will oppose the changes in Parliament, Senator Hanson-Young said.

Assistant Education Minister Sussan Ley said maintaining eligibility thresholds for the Child Care Benefit at the current levels would help ensure these payments are “sustainable” in future. “It’s key families remember we’ve also tasked the Productivity Commission with finding ways to make childcare more affordable, flexible and accessible and restored $12.6 million for occasional childcare that Labor cut,” she said.

The Labor government curbed the growth of the separate Child Care Rebate by capping its upper limit at $7500. The rebate pays half the annual out-of-pocket costs of childcare users up to that amount. Ms Ley said families may still be eligible for the Child Care Rebate, which is not means-tested, if their income exceeded the Child Care Benefit threshold. Parents affected by the latest changes to the Child Care Benefit might receive more assistance under the rebate.
