CCS

Families who use our service are eligible to claim the Child Care Subsidy (CCS). The CCS has replaced the Child Care Rebate with a single means-tested subsidy in July 2018. 

The CCS is a national child care system that brings child care services online. The CCS is designed to assist the Government in managing the funding for child care. It enables the Australian Government to better track the supply and usage of child care places.
Our service is required to report all enrolment and attendance data to the Department of Education via the internet to allow calculation and payment of CCS fee reductions on behalf of children in our service. Families pay the provider the difference between their subsidy and the fees charged.

We recommend that all families who use our service register with the Department of Human Services (DHS), even those not claiming the rebate. For more information, or to register for the online service, families call the DHS on 13 61 50 or online at http://www.humanservices.gov.au.
