Child Care Subsidy

Assistance to help you with the cost of child care from 2 July 2018.

Eligibility basics

  • care for a child 13 or younger and not attending secondary school, unless an exemption applies
  • use an approved child care service
  • responsible for paying the child care fees
  • meet residency and immunisation requirements
We pay this subsidy after the care has been provided. We’ll pay your child care service once they send us your child’s session report. Speak to your provider to see how they’re managing payments during this transition period.
