The amount of Child Care Subsidy you can get depends on your circumstances.
To work out how much Child Care Subsidy you’re eligible for we’ll look at:
- your family’s income
- the hourly rate cap based on the type of approved child care you use and your child’s age, and
- the hours of activity you and your partner do
The hours of subsidised child care you can access per fortnight applies to each child.
You can use the hours of subsidised care you’re eligible for in a number of ways. This depends on how your child care provider charges you. Read more about your hours of care.
