Care For Newcomer Children (CNC): Highlights
Care for Newcomer Children (CNC) is a new childcare support service that enables eligible parents to attend CIC-funded settlement services, while their children receive care at the same site.
CNC, will be implemented in April 2013 and will replace LINC Childminding and Occasional Child Care.
Development of the CNC model was carried out from July 2009 through March 2010 in consultation with representatives of stakeholder groups from across the country and with the guidance of experts in the early childhood field. In 2011/12, elements of the new CNC model were piloted at two Service Providing Organizations (SPOs), with a third-party assessment of the pilot model undertaken in January, 2012.
The CNC model provides flexibility and choice. Rather than providing child care support for individual CIC-funded services, SPOs will be able to support all adult services within a single child care program. This program model reduces barriers, increases efficiency and service uptake, and allows SPOs to care for more children and better meet the needs of the newcomer families they serve.
SPOs will choose the type of care that will best complement CIC-funded settlement service delivery. Final decisions on services and the type of care offered are subject to CIC approval.
Types of Care
SPOs currently offering licensed care can continue to do so.
Care For Newcomer Children (CNC): Questions and Answers
1. Why do we need a new model of care?
CIC saw a need for a change in the child care supports to assist SPOs in offering care to parents. During the consultation for a new child care model SPOs expressed their ideas from which the CNC program grew. The CNC model provides more flexibility and choice. Rather than providing child care support for individual CIC-funded services, you are able to support all CIC-funded adult services within a single child care program. This is an opportunity to review and revise outdated practices and become more efficient in providing and managing the care of children.
In general, the CNC program model allows you to care for more children and better meet the needs of the newcomer families you serve.
2. What requirements will we need to follow?
A new set of requirements have been developed that will replace the National LINC Childminding Requirements and the Occasional Child Care Requirements.
