New CCS Facebook

The new Child Care Subsidy package, which will include a new payment known as the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), is due to be fully implemented on 2 July this year.

The CCS will replace the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate (CCR) and will be paid directly to Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services on behalf of families.

As the changes surrounding this new package will affect more than 17,000 service providers across Australia and over 1.2 million families using ECEC services, ACA  has produced some simple educational materials to ensure that all of our members and their families understand what they need to do between now and July to ensure a successful transition to the new system. 

We encourage Early Childhood Education and Care services to make use of these materials and share relevant information with their families in the lead up to the introduction of the new Child Care Package in July 2018. You can visit the webpage here
