Please contact the Nominated Supervisor or submit an online enquiry via this website to find out the current fees. As we are an Approved Service families are able to apply for Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) to assist with the cost of child care.
Please try and find out your CCB rate from the Family Assistance Office before calling the centre. That way we can give you a more accurate estimate of your fees.
Government rebates to assist with the cost of child care.
There are two main subsidies offered by the Australian Government to assist families to meet the cost of childcare. These are the Child Care Rebate (CCR) and the Child Care Benefit (CCB).
Information about these rebates is available from the Family Assistance office or online at:
The CCB is a means tested subsidy that is administered by the Family Assistance Office. We reduce your fees by offsetting the CCB amount against your weekly fees. The amount of CCB you receive varies depending on your income, number of booked days, number of children in care, and whether or not you pass the work, training and study test - a further subsidy is available for families if they are studying or training.
The CCR is designed to help working families with the cost of childcare. The rebate covers 50% of out-of-pocket expenses not covered by the CCB (up to a maximum of $7,500 per financial year for each child). You can choose to have the rebate paid directly to your child's centre on a fortnightly basis, thereby reducing your fortnightly fees. Or you can choose to have the rebate paid directly into your bank account in which case you pay the full fee (less the CCB) to the centre. The CCR rebate is not means tested, but you do need to be registered for CCB (even if you get 0% CCB) in order to receive this rebate.
You can use the handy online subsidy calculator to find out your rebate rate. https://secure.centrelink.gov.au/RateEstimatorsWeb/publicUserCombinedStart.doEnrol Online
