To apply for the subsidy, you must register with the Family Assistance Office and confirm your bookings through your MyGov account. It is your responsibility to apply for the rebate, and full fees will be charged until our centre receives your childcare subsidy rate notification, if any. If you require any assistance, please speak with your Service Manager upon enrolment.
Any childcare benefits received are paid directly from the Government to us and subtracted from our daily fee. The amount remaining, known as the gap fee, is the amount you will pay to us. To receive the childcare subsidy, you must sign your child in and out of our centre each day of attendance and on return after any absence (which must not exceed 42 days in a financial year).
The Family Assistance Office outlines exceptions to the 42 allowable absences rule. Fees applied to your account due to late collection of your child are not eligible for CCS.
