We are an Australian Government approved child care centre, which means families who are eligible for the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS), or other payments will be able to link to our centre through their myGov account.
The CCS, ACCS and other Child Care Package payments reduce the true cost of child care fees for eligible families, and is paid directly to our centre, based on the information provided to Centrelink.
There are key factors which decide how much your CCS entitlement will be:
- Your combined family income
- The amount of Approved Activity hours completed each fortnight by the lower-income earning parent
- The type of child care session enrolled in e.g. long day care or out of school hours care
Your CSS entitlement will be a percentage subsidy applied to your child care fees, and a set amount of hours that percentage subsidy will apply for.
To estimate your Child Care Subsidy or other entitlements you may be eligible for, please visit Centrelink's Payment and Services page.
When you enrol in our centre, we'll work with you to complete a Complying Written Arrangement (CWA) which lists your normal permanent days, and also allows for convenient casual care bookings. At the time of enrolment, you will be required to pay two weeks' fees - the current week and a week in advance. Fees are paid via direct debit and family accounts are to be kept a week in advance at all times.
