Child Care Subsidy
The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) reduces your out of pocket child care expenses by giving you a percentage discount off the daily fee for a nominated amount of hours per fortnight. CCS is not applied for, edited or amended by Beachwood. Where eligible to receive CCS, the payment comes directly from the Government to our centre to reduce your daily fees.
The percentage of CCS you will receive, and the number of hours each fortnight, depends on your circumstances. There are three criteria:
• Your family’s income
• Hours of ‘recognised’ activity that you and your partner (where applicable), undertake
• The “hourly rate cap” based on the type of approved childcare and your child’s age
To help you understand your possible entitlements please use the online CCS calculator.
