Financial Assistance

There are two Government subsidies available to assist parents with the cost of child care. The Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the Child Care Rebate (CCR). A sliding scale of care benefits apply depending upon a number of factors.

You may be eligible for the CCB if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending child care services approved by, or registered with the Government. To claim the CCB you must contact the Family Assistance Office.

The CCR is a payment from the Government that assists working families with the cost of child care. There are certain requirements you must meet to be eligible for the CCR including meeting the eligibility requirements of the CCB.

If you would like further information on child care benefits or an application form please contact the Children’s Services Team or the Family Assistance Office.
