The Subsidy Assessment is Based on The Following Factors:
Your family’s combined income
Your activities and the Hours of Activity you and your partner do
The type of childcare your child attends
To receive CCS, you must set up a Centrelink account online and provide information to the government to prove your eligibility. Then, the government will provide you and your child with a Customer Reference Number (CRN). You are to submit these CRNs to your chosen childcare centre so they can calculate the rebates.
Full payment is required to your chosen childcare centre until the CRN is provisioned and released. Moreover, a maximum of 42 days of absence is permitted per child per fiscal year, after which you may be charged the full amount.
From July 11, 2022, children who haven’t attended a session of care in 26 consecutive weeks will no longer be eligible for CCS.
From March 7, 2022, families with two or more children up to the age of five receive higher subsidies for the second and subsequent children, between 30% and 95% on top of the revenue-tested eligible child rate.
As family circumstances differ, we recommend that you give us a call to discuss how to apply for childcare subsidy.
