Child Care Subsidy

(CCS)

The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a payment offered by the Australian Government for which you may be eligible. CCS reduces your childcare fees by subsidising the daily rate of fees charged by the service. Once subsidy applies to your family’s childcare fees, you only pay the gap payment remaining.

Depending on your personal circumstances, there may also be other government funding available.

What is childcare subsidy?

The Child Care Subsidy is means tested based on the combined family income, the fortnightly activity of families – such as work, study or volunteering and the type of service your child attends, as well as their age. As part of the Child Care Subsidy, the number of hours of subsidised care you will be entitled to will be based on your level of recognised activity. Understanding the different types of activity that will be recognised is key to maximising your Child Care Subsidy.
