Childcare Subsidy

Under the Child Care Package introduced on 2 July 2018, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is available for eligible families. This is a single payment system made directly to childcare services, which supplements the fees paid by families.

The percentage of CCS you will receive is calculated according to your estimated annual family income, level of approved activity and type of childcare. To receive the CCS you must create or update your family account with Centrelink (Department of Human Services) online prior to your child’s first day of care, as if you do not do this, you will pay full fees for childcare. For more information on the CCS visit the Australian Government website. To find out what you may be entitled visit Centrelink’s website.
