Engaging education and quality care for children 2-6 years

Childcare Subsidy

The new Child Care Subsidy (CCS) has replaced the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) with a single, means-tested subsidy. This is paid directly to providers to be passed on to families.

However, it is not an automatic rollover from the two current payments. You must confirm your current details and provide any new information using your online Centrelink account through MyGov. To receive the full benefits of CCS you will also need to complete a Centrelink Child Care Subsidy Assessment.

If you’re not sure how much you can receive, the Department of Education and Training has developed a handy estimator to help families work out what they’re entitled to. 

To find out if you are eligible for the subsidy, you can contact Centrelink on 13 24 68 or visit the Human Services website. If you are eligible, you will need to obtain a Customer Reference Number (CRN) prior to enrolling with us. If you are already eligible and have a CRN, you will need to provide this to us at the time of enrolment.

For more information regarding our fees, contact us or speak to our Centre Director, Dee.
