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 and 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 Director 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.
