Child Care Subsidy Entitlements
Australia’s child care package includes the new Child Care Subsidy (CCS). The subsidy is the main way the government assists families with their childcare fees and it is paid directly to services, with families making a co-contribution to their childcare fees. Some basic requirements must be satisfied for an individual to be eligible to receive Child Care Subsidy for a child. These include:
- The age of the child
- The child meeting immunisation requirements
- The individual, or their partner, meeting the residency requirements listed in the legislation.
Utilising yours and your child’s CRN we will be able to apply subsidy to your account if applicable. If you are unsure of the CRN details, please contact Centrelink on 136 150
