Children who are on holiday

Watch this video to learn what to do when a child is absent or on holiday.

On this page:

You must not report children who are absent as attending a session of care. Session reports must be accurate and complete.

You should only report sessions of care if the parent continues to pay fees and it is marked as an allowable absence.

We may take compliance action if you fail to meet your obligations, including:

  • putting conditions on your approval,
  • issuing an infringement or
  • suspending or cancelling your approval.
