Child Care Subsidy – Assistance to help you with the cost of child care

Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is paid directly to the child care provider to reduce the fees you pay

To register for CCS:

  • Sign in to myGov and go to Centrelink
  • Select Payment and Claims from the menu, then Claims, then Make a claim
  • Under Families, select Get started
  • Answer all the questions. Each screen has information to help you complete the claim. This includes how to submit your supporting documents
  • Submit your claim

CCS will let you know the result of your claim via an Assessment Notice to your myGov inbox, or via post

Gannawarra Shire Council requires proof that your child is registered for CCS before any childcare can be confirmed, so please ensure a copy of your Assessment Notice is included with your child’s enrolment forms
