Child Care Subsidy Estimator


To begin, please select which option best describes you:

The amount of Child Care Subsidy you will be entitled to from 10 December 2021 will depend on three 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).
  • 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.
