Child Care Subsidy

The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) provides financial assistance to help families with child care costs. This support allows families to more easily access high-quality child care and early education, offering valuable learning and development opportunities for their children.

The amount of CCS you receive depends on various factors, including your family’s income, the type of child care you use, your child’s age, your activity hours, and the number of children in your care.

The CCS is paid directly to the child care provider, which in turn reduces your fees.

Use our simple Child Care Subsidy estimator tool to find out what your family might pay for early education and child care at Kids Academy Early Learning Centres.
