The Government Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is the main system that assists families with their child care fees.
Some basic requirements that must be satisfied to be eligible to receive Child Care Subsidy include:
There are three factors that determine the level of a family's Child Care Subsidy:
The combined family income determines the family's eligible CCS percentage.
Please note that you will need to inform Centrelink if there are any changes to your combined income.
Refer to Department of Education- Combined Family Income for more information.
The amount of work related activity level determines the eligible hours of subsidy.
The activity level is calculated from the least active parent.
Please refer to Department of Education- Activity Test to see what is classified as 'work related activity' and to access a brief guide of your eligible subsidy hours.
The Government has different maximum hourly subsidy rates based on the type of child care service.
