Information About Your Child Care Subsidy And Rebate


Did you know that from 1 July 2018 the Australian Government introduced a new childcare subsidy?

The Australian Governments, Department of Human Services, may provide you with financial assistance through Centrelink towards the cost of your child’s care.

If you have not registered for the new child care subsidy or if you do not have a CRN you must contact the Department of Human Services/Centrelink on 13 61 50, or by visiting one of their offices.

To access this assistance, please ensure you complete the information correctly on your Enrolment Form.

We provide this information to the Department of Human Services. They will validate the information against their records to determine if you can receive a Child Care Subsidy (CCS).

About the Child Care Subsidy and Your Child Care Fees and Rebate

The Child Care Subsidy is a payment from the Department of Human Services/Centrelink. It provides financial assistance towards the cost of your child’s care and it reduces the cost of your total childcare fees.

You may be eligible for the child care subsidy if you meet the requirements set out by Centrelink. This includes an activity and income test.

Once approved, the government passes the child care subsidy directly onto your childcare service.

Parents are responsible for notifying the Department of Human Services of any changes that may affect their assessment. This includes changes to your family income or changes to your activity.

We’ve developed this estimator to give you an idea of how much Child Care Subsidy you could expect to receive from 2 July 2018.

Or alternatively you can use the government’s online guide to assist you in completing an assessment for the Child Care Subsidy.

What they say

Claire Brown

  We have been attending Little Scribblers Brookvale since it opened and are extremely happy! We have 2 boys there now and hubby and I honestly feel as though the staff love our boys as much as we do! They are so attentive and have so much love to give. The communication between management/staff and parents is fantastic and the programs and planning that goes into each room is exceptional. Highly recommended!

Stacey Broadbent

  Great School! Teachers are amazing & dedicated. I trust all of them 100% with my child. Extremely clean & food is great plus nutritional. Would highly recommend Lil Scribblers to other parents.
