Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

As of 2 July 2018, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) replaced Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) as the sole means-tested subsidy available to assist families with the cost of child care.

The amount of Child Care Subsidy you are eligible for is based on three factors:

1. How many hours of ‘work-related’ activity you and your partner undertake each fortnight. If a couple, the number of subsidised hours will be based on the partner with the lowest hours of activity.
Hours of activity per fortnightMaximum number of hours of subsidy per fortnight
Less than 8 hours

0 hours if you earn above $70,015

24 hours if you earn $70,015 or below

Further information about the Child Care Subsidy including what constitutes work-related activity can be found on the Department of Human Services website.

You can get an estimate of what your family may be entitled to by entering your details into the Department of Human Services Payment and Service Finder.

If you know your hours of activity per fortnight and combined family income, the CCS Calculator is a useful tool to calculate your out-of-pocket expenses based on the number of days and hours your child will attend our centre and the daily rate for their age group.
