Parents can receive a reduced fee through the federal government Child Care Subsidy (CCS). Families can visit the Centrelink website to apply or call 13 61 50. Families will need to register for a myGov account if you don’t already have one in order to claim benefits.
Additional Child Care Subsidy may be available in times of temporary financial hardship and/or exceptional circumstances. Please contact the service to apply.
Grandparents responsible for the care of their grandchildren may also be able to access the Child Care Subsidy. Grandparents will need to go through the same process to register for the Child Care Subsidy as explained above.
Each educator has their own individual Fee Schedule that has been approved by our Service and the Service charges families a weekly Service Levy which is included in the fee and collected through educators.
