Assistance with fees

As an approved service Cammeray Children’s Centre is eligible to get the Child Care Subsidy on your behalf to reduce your child care fees. Three things determine a family’s level of Child Care Subsidy:

  • A family’s annual adjusted taxable income determines the percentage of subsidy they are eligible for
  • An activity test determines how many hours of subsidised care families can access, up to a maximum of 100 per fortnight, and
  • The type of child care service determines the hourly rate cap (For long day care it is capped at $11.77 per hour).

Some basic requirements must be satisfied for an individual to be eligible to receive Child Care Subsidy for a child. These include: •the age of the child (must be 13 or under and not attending secondary school) •the child meeting immunisation requirements •the individual, or their partner, meeting the residency requirements.
