Harty Street Community Kindergarten receives funding through the State and Federal Government for our Kindergarten program. Further subsidies are also eligible for those families that are eligible for and receive Family Tax Benefit A or B. The above funding does not apply to our pre-kindergarten or after-kindergarten care program. As Harty Street C&K is licensed as a kindergarten and not a child-care service, families are not eligible to receive payments under the Federal Government’s Child-Care Subsidy system. Please also note that our pre-kindergarten and after-kindergarten care programs do not attract any of the funding detailed above.
