Child Care Subsidy

Assistance to help you with the cost of child care.

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
If your child has not attended child care for 8 continuous weeks, your enrolment will end. For example, this can happen if you only use vacation care during school holidays. Read what you need to do to restart your CCS  if your enrolment  has ended.
