Child Care Subsidy(CCS)

Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a Government payment to help eligible families who use approved and registered child care. CCS payments help eligible families reduce their weekly payments and can also help make child care more affordable for BlueBerries ChildCare families.

The amount of the new Child Care Subsidy you will be entitled to will depend on three key things as below;

  • How much ‘recognised’ activity you and your partner undertake each fortnight. The entitlement is based on the lesser activity figure for a member of a couple.
  • What your combined family income is.
  • The child care fees you pay (hourly rate caps apply for each service type).

BlueBerries ChildCare has flexible session hour(from 6 hours to all day session) to maximise your subsidy. If you have any other questions about this or would like to know more including our Fee schedule, please feel free to  contact us. Also you can contact Centrelink Family and Parent line on 136 150(Monday-Friday 8AM-8PM).
