Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Families are required to complete the online Child Care Subsidy assessment via the myGov website prior to starting at the Service. This will determine your eligibility and level of Child Care Subsidy entitlement. On enrolment we will need the Customer Reference Number (CRN) of the person linked with the child as well as the child’s CRN so we can confirm registration and ensure that you are receiving the appropriate subsidy. Child Care Subsidy is means-tested subsidy paid directly to the Service as a fee reduction. There are three factors that will determine a family’s level of Child Care Subsidy, which include:
    • Combined Family Income
    • Activity Test
    • Service Type
Transitioning to Child Care Subsidy requires families to provide information and confirm current details by using your Centrelink online account through myGov. Here you will be asked to provide your combined family income estimate for the financial year, hours of recognised activity including work, training, study and volunteering and the type of child care your family uses.
