The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a payment made by the Australian Government to help families with the cost of quality Child Care and Education.
The CCS is means targeted and will be paid directly to the Service. The number of hours of subsidised care families can access will be determined by an Activity Test.
The higher the level of activity, the more hours of subsidised care families can access and therefore less out of pocket expenses.
There are many forms of recognised activity and our friendly Office Staff can assist our families in calculating the maximum number of hours claimable in order to maximise their fee assistance.
To receive CCS, families must create a MyGov Account and link it to their Centrelink online account. Income estimates, activity hours and enrolment at our Centre will all need to be confirmed on line. Once the Child Care Subsidy assessment is complete the amount of CCS and Activity hours will be available and the Centre can provide families with their out of pocket expenses.
Fees from July 2nd 2018: $102.00 per day
More information about CCS and the Activity test can be accessed at www.education.gov.au/ChildCarePackage
Families will be able to access an online calculator to determine their eligible CCS percentage.
“MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR CHILD CARE SUBSIDY”
By offering flexible hours of care to our full time enrolments. Ten hour sessions of care are now available in addition to the 12 hour sessions 6.30am to 6.30pm. There are 5 different Ten Hour Sessions of care to choose from. This gives families more flexibility of how and when their eligible hours of subsidised care can be used. More specifically, ten hour sessions of care are designed to reduce out of pocket expenses by ensuring all hours of care utilised are subsidised thereby maximising Child Care Subsidy.
