Childcare Subsidy Information (CCS)

As a recognised childcare provider, we are registered for the Government Childcare Subsidy (CCS). The CCS was launched in 2018 and designed to help make early learning and childcare more accessible for a large number of Australian families.

What is Childcare Subsidy (CCS)?

As a recognised childcare provider, we are registered for the Government Childcare Subsidy (CCS).

Only About Children is here to support you as you begin to discover your family’s CCS entitlements and the varied enrolment options available. We can help guide you to make the most of your CCS, so your child or children can benefit from the exciting opportunities that the right early learning or preschool/kindergarten environment can offer.

How does the Child Care Subsidy work?

The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to providers to be passed on to families as a fee reduction. Families will make a co-contribution to their child care fees and pay to the provider the difference between the fee charged and the subsidised amount.
