Calculate your Child Care Subsidy (CCS) entitlements

From July 2023, the Australian Government is increasing the Child Care Subsidy rates. Use our estimator to find out how much subsidy you could be eligible for, either now or come July 2023.

The amount of Child Care Subsidy (CCS) you are entitled to will depend on four things:

  • How much ‘recognised’ activity you and your partner undertake each fortnight.  
  • The entitlement is based on the lesser activity figure for a member of a couple.
  • What your combined family income is. The child care fees you pay (hourly rate caps apply for each service type).
  • The number and age of children you have in 'approved' care.

This estimator does not take into account that Goodstart does not charge for public holidays.

Read the full terms of our Disclaimer and use of personal information before using the estimator.

Did you know that we don't charge for public holidays?

We're not for profit, so we can do more for children
