Child Care Subsidy (CCS) from 2 July 2018

On 2 July 2018 the Child Care Subsidy replaced the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR). The Child Care Subsidy is paid directly to early learning services to be passed onto families.

What determines your family’s level of Child Care Subsidy?

  • A family’s annual adjusted taxable income determines the percentage of subsidy they are eligible for

  • An activity test determines how many hours of subsidised care families can access, up to a maximum of 100 per fortnight, and

  • The type of child care service determines the hourly rate cap.

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

You can also use our Child Care Subsidy Calculator - a quick and easy alternative to Centrelink's Payment and Service Finder - to estimate your level of fortnightly support and out-of-pocket “gap” fee under the new Child Care Subsidy .

More information on transitioning to the new Child care Subsidy is available at www.education.gov.au/childcare.
