How The Childcare Subsidy Works

To make Child Care Subsidy (CCS) claims and view the status of your claims, families can go to and sign in to access their Centrelink online account. If you do not have a myGov account, you can create one and link it to your Centrelink online account.

Your CCS will be paid from the date of approval with Centrelink. If your child attends before your CCS is approved you may be required to pay full fees as CCS will not be backdated by Centrelink. If for any reason you are not eligible for CCS payments, you will be charged full fees for days that your child attends.

In order to receive CCS, parents must sign every child in and out every day they attend the Centre.

To receive CCS for a child's absence, a record must be made of the reason for the absence. Upon your child's return to the centre please confirm and accept the electronic absence on the Kiosk and provide your medical certificate to the Service Manager if applicable.
