Child Care
Subsidy

In Home Childcare

If other forms of childcare are not right for your family then you may be able to access Leor in your home with the support of the Child Care Subsidy.

As an approved provider of In Home Care under the Child Care Subsidy, Leor offers care across regional and metropolitan areas of New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, the Northern Territory, the Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania.

Unlike other providers of In Home Care, Leor Educators are directly employed by Leor, which means they must meet high professional standards as a member of the Leor team. They are regularly monitored and supervised by our team of professionals, to ensure they are meeting your child’s learning and development needs. Our wider team of education and allied health professionals also oversee your child’s program to ensure your child stays on track to achieve success.
