Child Care Subsidy

Assistance to help you with the cost of child care.

To get this you must:

  • care for a child 13 or younger who's not attending secondary school, unless an exemption applies
  • use an approved child care service
  • be responsible for paying the child care fees
  • meet residency and immunisation requirements.

Read the full conditions under who can get it.

We’re now balancing Child Care Subsidy for 2018-19 but you won’t get your outcome straightaway. There’s no need to worry or call us to check its progress. We’ll send you a letter once yours has been balanced.
The next school holidays are coming up. If you haven’t used child care in a while, read about CCS for vacation care during the holidays.
