Child Care Subsidy

The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a system through which the Australian government allocates funds to bring down the cost of childcare for Australian families who meet certain requirements.

This takes the form of a percentage by which school fees can be decreased and is calculated based on the following:

1.Total Family Income

Your Child Care Subsidy percentage is calculated based on your family’s total income. These numbers change with the CPI increase each year, which means that your entitlements can differ year to year even if your circumstances stay the same.

Family IncomeChild Care Subsidy Percentage
$0 – $68,16385%
$68,163 – $173, 16350% to 85%
$173,163 – $252,45350%
$252,453 – $342,45320% to 50%
$342,453 – $352,45320%
$352,453 or more0%

Once your combined annual income exceeds $188,163, a Child Care Subsidy cap will become applicable, which amounts to $10,373 per child.

2. Hours of Care Required

Your required care hours are based on the Activity Levels & Hours of the least active member of your family per fortnight.

Centrelink will determine the hours of Child Care Subsidy that you are eligible for based on your activity, which takes the following into consideration:

  • Paid or unpaid work (including self-employment or a family business)
  • Unpaid work experience or internship
  • Actively setting up a business (eligible for 6 months each year)
  • Up to 6 months of paid or unpaid leave (including parental or maternity leave)
  • Studying an approved course
  • Training to improve work skills or employability
  • Looking for work
  • Volunteering
  • Reasonable travel time from childcare to your activity and back
3. Hourly Rate


Your rate of reduction is based on the lowest rate of either the school fees or the capped hourly rate. The hourly rate is capped at $11.98 for long daycare services. Most long daycare sessions last 11 hours, so services that charge less than $131.78 per day will yield a lower rate for you.
