Disability Access Funds (DAF): The Disability Access Fund is a one-off payment per child per year to the childcare provider nominated by the parent and is to be used to support the inclusion of eligible 3 & 4-year-olds through reasonable adjustments. The payment is made regardless of how many hours a child attends and is not prorated.
