An early childhood education professor is unconvinced the Government's latest cost of living measure, which could see some families get a weekly $75 rebate on fees, will work as planned.

Victoria University's director of the Institute of Early Childhood Studies, Sue Cherrington, told Breakfast while an extra $75 would be "positive" for families who can get it, the overall process will be "administratively cumbersome to manage".
"And I think there's also going to be a large proportion of families who are going to get a much smaller amount of funding or tax rebates."

She said the level of administrative work required to get the rebate would be "more effort than it's worth" for some families.
