Child Care Subsidy

Child Care Subsidy Information

How The Australian Government’s Child Care Subsidy Works With Lifelong Learning Centres

Since July 2, 2018, the new Child Care Subsidy (CCS) system has been in effect. This replaced the previous Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate programs, and has made it easier for families to access child care.

The amount of the new Child Care Subsidy you are entitled to depends on three key things:
  • Your combined family income
  • The amount of ‘recognised’ activity you and your partner undertake each fortnight
  • The child care fees you pay
You can calculate how much Child Care Subsidy you are eligible to receive through this link.

The Child Care Subsidy is paid directly to our child care centre, reducing your out of pocket fees.

You must register at to qualify for the child care subsidy.

Further information can be found here: If you have any questions or would like to speak to a Lifelong Learning representative on the CCS, please call 1800 CHILD CARE and one of our Family Support Consultants will be glad to help you.
