Childcare Subsidy (CCS) Overview

As a recognized childcare provider, we are registered for the Government Childcare Subsidy (CCS).

 

I Steam Ahead is here to support you as you begin to discover your family’s CCS entitlements and the varied enrolment options available. We can help guide you to make the most of your CCS, so your child or children can benefit from the exciting opportunities that our environment can offer.

How does the Child Care Subsidy work?

 

The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to providers to be passed on to families as a fee reduction. Families will make a co-contribution to their childcare fees and pay to the provider the difference between the fee charged and the subsidized amount.

You can use the Centrelink Payment & Service finder to calculate your estimated entitlement.
