Australia The Victorian Government has accused Canberra of failing to properly fund compliance checks in the family day care sector, leaving the industry open to fraudsters claiming millions of dollars in taxpayers' money.
The political showdown was expected to be brought to a head at the Education Council meeting of state, territory and federal ministers on December Differing interpretations in national laws governing the approval of service providers had exacerbated the impasse, with the Federal Government countering it was the states' responsibility to approve and conduct compliance checks.
Victorian Children's Minister Jenny Mikakos said the number of family day care providers — where care is provided in educator's own homes rather than in childcare centres — had skyrocketed by per cent in the past four years, particularly in Melbourne's northern and western suburbs.
She said federal funding for compliance checks had failed to keep pace and she was concerned family day care had "become a licence to print money", with Commonwealth childcare benefit and rebates being paid to fraudsters.
Claims made for 'ghost children' While the family day care sector represented only 10 per cent of child care services, it made up almost 80 per cent of Victoria's enforcement actions, including 62 cancellations of service approval. Victoria told to 'fix it' But Federal Minister Simon Birmingham said states and territories had the power to stop issuing approvals for new operators and urged Victoria to "do its job rather than hold its hand out for more money".
Family day care has skyrocketed over the past four years in Melbourne. ABC News "Victoria is one of only two states in the country [that] have approved more family day care into the child care system over the past 12 months, whereas others have managed to reduce the number of family day care providers," he said.
Major loopholes such as the so-called "child swapping" rort - where groups of parents became accredited as childcare providers and fraudulently claimed to have looked after each others' children in order to receive benefits — had been closed, the Minister said.
Work was also being undertaken to review the adequacy of compliance measures, with a report due back to the Education Council, and other improvements were contained in major childcare reforms currently before Federal Parliament.Government‐Industry Roundtable A Report on the Office of Inspector General and Health Care Compliance Association improving quality of care.
