Child Care Subsidy
As a recognised childcare provider, we are registered for the Government Childcare Subsidy (CCS).
Government assistance with the cost of child care is available to eligible resident families.
There are three factors that determine a family’s level of Child Care Subsidy. These are the combined annual family income, the activity level of both parents including work, study and volunteering, and the service type.
The Child Care Subsidy is paid directly to providers and is passed on to families as a fee reduction. Families must make a co-contribution to their child care fees and pay to the provider the difference between the fee charged and the subsidised amount, the ‘gap’.
To register for CCSS, you will need a CRN and to complete a claim via your MyGov, Centerlink account.
