Child Care Subsidy

From 2 July 2018, Child Care Subsidy (CCS) had replaced the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR). CCS helps families with the cost of approved childcare. 

Department of Human Services (“Centrelink”) pays this subsidy directly to child care providers to reduce the fees you pay. The amount you may be eligible for depends on:

  • Your total combined family income
  • How much ‘work related’ activity (see you and your partner undertake each fortnight. The entitlement is based on the lesser activity figure for a member of a couple.
  • the hourly rate cap based on the type of child care you use and your child’s age


Our Flexible Session Options

Help You Minimise Out-of-Pocket Cost

We understand that each family has its individual situations and needs when it comes to your young child and your CCS entitlements. We are here to help you.

We offer three different sessions to help you maximise the CCS you can receive from the government, which minimises your out-of-pocket cost.

You can choose between:

  • a full-day session from 7:00am to 6:00pm, or
  • a 10 hour session from 7:30am to 5:30pm or
  • a 9 hour session from 8:00am to 5:00pm.

Based on how many hours of subsidised care you are entitled to, and your personal situations, we can help you choose the best session that meets your needs and minimise your out-of-pocket cost for childcare. You are welcomed to give us a call during our opening hours to find out how we are able to help.

If you have known your CCS percentage and hours, you can also use the CCS Calculator provided by our peak body – Australian Childcare Alliance – for a free and discrete assessment for how much CCS you may be entitled to and how much weekly cost you will be paying out of pocket. We have no data sharing with them at all. So using this link ensures that the privacy of your personal information is totally secure, and there will be no unsolicited contacts sent to you.
