With less than 3 weeks to go until the switch to the new Child Care Subsidy, we're keen to hear how you're feeling about your service's operational readiness. 

Let us know how you're travelling - just click here to answer  two simple questions.

The Department of Education and Training (DET) has recently sent out an email to remind service providers that today (May 31st) is the deadline to submit the online Transition Form.  

All providers, or their legal representatives, have been asked to complete the online transition form for all of their services by the end of May. If you haven't yet done this, now is the time to log onto the new Child Care Subsidy System (CCSS) immediately to complete and submit your online Transition Form.

As the commencement date (2 July) for the new Child Care Subsidy gets closer, families will be keen to find out what their actual Child Care Subsidy Rate and Eligible hours per fortnight will be under the new system. 

Families can now make use of our Child Care Subsidy Calculator - a quick and easy alternative to Centrelink's Payment and Service Finder - to estimate their level of fortnightly support and their out-of-pocket “gap” fee under the Australian Government's Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
