Child Care Subsidy

The Australian Government provides families with financial assistance to help cover the costs of approved child care – the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) introduced on 2 July 2018. Child Care Subsidy replaced the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR). For families to be eligible to receive any relevant subsidies, you will be required to have a myGov account linked to Centrelink. The CCS is paid directly to the centre providing care for your child based on your attendance records that are submitted. It is passed on to you as a fee reduction.

The Department of Education and Training have great resources available to families with information regarding the CCS. You can find these resources here.

From 1 January 2016, families with children who are not immunised (and do not have an approved exemption) will not receive the FTB Part A end of year supplement and child care subsidies. For more information please visit here.
