Fee relief

The Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

From July 2023 the Australian Government will be increasing its Child Care Subsidy (CCS) rates for families.

The CCS is a government subsidy that offers different levels of financial assistance to help cover the cost of childcare for Australian families. How much you receive depends on your individual circumstances.

Some of the key changes that make this such positive news for Only About Children families include:

  • Lifting the maximum CCS rate to 90% for families earning $80,000 or less
  • Increasing CCS rates for around 96% of families with a child in care earning under $530,000.
  • Investing $33.7 million to increase subsidised ECEC to a minimum of 36 hours per fortnight for families with First Nations children.
  • These changes are in addition to the increased Higher Sibling Subsidy the government introduced in early 2022.

NSW Start Strong Preschool Funding: Preschool fee relief

If you’re a parent in New South Wales with a child aged three to five years old, you may be eligible for free preschool funding through the State Government’s Start String Free Preschool Funding program. If your child reaches 4 by July 31, 2023, or before, you are eligible for $2,100 in fee relief if he or she attends preschool at least two days per week. More information on payments and eligibility criteria can be found on the NSW Government Start Strong Funding webpage.

Additional funding support

Some families can get  additional Child Care Subsidy to provide extra support with childcare fees.

There are four different types of additional Child Care Subsidy that you can apply for if you’re either:

  • A grandparent
  • Transitioning to work
  • Experiencing temporary financial hardship
  • Caring for a child who is vulnerable or at risk of harm, abuse, or neglect
