Is your child growing up faster than you can say Jack Robinson? Check! Before you know it, it's time for you to leave your little one at a daycare facility or with a host family for the first time. If your child attends a childcare facility, then you will receive a childcare allowance. This is one of the supplementary allowances that forms part of the Growth Package.
