The Australian Government may provide financial assistance towards the cost of your child’s care. If you would like to access this assistance, please fill out an enquiry form with the following information:
- Your Customer Reference Number (CRN – issued to you by the Family Assistance Office)
- Your child’s Customer Reference Number (issued to you by the Family Assistance Office)
- Your date of birth (CRN Holder)
- Your child’s date of birth
This information will be provided to the Department of Education and training and validated against their records to determine if you can receive a Child Care Rebate (CCR) and/or Child Care Benefit (CCB). If you do not have a CRN please contact the Family Assistance Office by calling 13 61 50, or by visiting one of their offices.
Child Care Benefit (CCB)
CCB is a payment from the Government that will provide financial assistance towards the cost of your child’s care and reduce the cost of your total child care fees. It is available to you if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending a child care program approved by the Government.
There are certain requirements you need to meet to be eligible for CCB. Until your CCB has been approved and has commenced, we will require full payment of your child’s early learning or care fees.
Parents need to inform the Family Assistance Office of any changes that may affect their assessment including changes to your family income or changes to your hours of care. Please let your Centre Manager know if your child’s siblings are attending another approved early learning program and you would like to claim the multiple Child Care Benefit percentage.
Child Care Rebate (CCR)
The CCR is additional assistance if you are using approved child care for work, study or training–related reasons. The CCR covers 50 per cent of your out–of– pocket cost for approved child care, and it does have a limit.
