As a recognised childcare provider, we are registered for the Government Childcare Subsidy (CCS).
Government Assistance with the cost of child care is available to eligible resident families. There are three factors that determine a family’s level of Child Care Subsidy. These are:
- Combined annual family income
- Activity test – the activity level of both parents including work, study, volunteering
- Service type – type of child care service and whether the child attends school
The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to providers to be passed on to families as a fee reduction. Families must make a co-contribution to their child care fees and pay to the provider the difference between the fee charged and the subsidised amount, the ‘gap’.
To register for CCSS, you will need a CRN and to complete a claim via your MyGov, Centerlink account.
