Childcare Subsidy

What is the Child Care Subsidy (CCS)?

The Child Care Subsidy is a government payment that reduces families out-of-pocket costs for childcare, including: Centre Based Day Care, Family Day Care or Outside School Hours Care.

Each family’s Child Care Subsidy covers a percentage of the childcare centre’s daily fees. This subsidy percentage is paid directly to childcare providers and then passed on to families as a fee reduction on their invoice. Families will pay the gap fee between the daily fees charges and the subsided amount.

If you’re new to childcare, we recommend that you apply for the claim as soon as possible, so that you understand your eligibility and can confidently enrol at a childcare centre.
