Many families are eligible for Child Care Subsidy (CCS), which can reduce the out-of-pocket cost of outside school hours care if eligible. All families claiming entitlements for approved childcare must have their income assessed by the relevant government department. Contact Centrelink Family and Parents Line on 13 61 50 for details on how to register.
All enrolments must be confirmed via myGov to be eligible for the CCS. For instructions on how to confirm your enrolment, refer to Services Australia.
If you’re eligible for CCS, you may get extra help with the cost of approved childcare from Services Australia.
We can apply for ACCS on your behalf if the child in your care is vulnerable or at risk of harm, abuse, or neglect.
For us to make the application, we require all supporting evidence, and it should not be dated more than six months old. This is to ensure any information and statements made in the letter are up to date. A new letter of support is required every six months.
What constitutes supporting evidence?
Supporting evidence can be anything that aids in explaining why the child is at risk. This can include:
If you are a grandparent, transitioning to work or experiencing financial hardship these types of ACCS are applied for directly with Centrelink. We can only apply for ACCS Child Wellbeing.

If you require care within 24 hours and your child is not enrolled, please contact the service directly.
