Looking for Childcare - Enrolments

Guide to Successful Enrolment

Ensure your information is up to date

Your CCB can be affected if you have other children in care or if one child attends more than one service. It’s important to tell the service about your child’s attendance at other child care services during the same period, so they can put the right details into the system. Make sure all contact details and other information are always updated with your Educator or contact us.

Make sure you know Yours and your child's CRN

Fees and Assistance

How much are the fees?

Family Day Care fees vary from Educator to Educator, the range is $7.50 per hour to $12.00 per hour.

What is the Child Care Benefit?

The Child Care Benefit (CCB) is income tested and is usually paid directly to child care providers to reduce your weekly fees.  To receive the Child Care Rebate (CCR) you must claim and be eligible for Child Care Benefit.

What is the Child Care Rebate?

  • The Child Care Rebate pays up to 50 per cent of your out-of-pocket expenses for child care up to an annual cap - currently $7500.
  • It is NOT income tested, so you may be eligible to receive it even if you don’t get the Child Care Benefit from your fees.
  • Your out of pocket child care costs are calculated after deducting any Child Care Benefit from your fees.
  • You need to meet Working/Studying guidelines to be eligible.
