Child Care Subsidy

Government Childcare Subsidy

Sutherland’s Childcare and Kindergarten is licensed as an “Approved” Long-Day-Care-Centre and Kindergarten. As a result, families may be eligible for fee assistance in the form of childcare subsidy. To be eligible for fee assistance, families must meet certain eligibility criteria as determined by the Federal Government.

CCS Entitlement Level

There are three things that will determine your level of subsidy:

  • Your combined family income
  • The activity level of your family – recognised activities that enable a family to claim (eg paid work, volunteering, studying, self-employed work, actively job seeking)
  • The type of childcare your child or children are enrolled in –this is a Long Day Care service.

You can use the Payment and Services Finder to estimate how much CCS you may get.

In order to receive the CCS, you will need to log into your myGov account and complete your CCS assessment task using your registered CRN. For further information on how to claim the CCS, click here.
