Child Care Subsidy (CCS)
Child Care Subsidy is provided to eligible families to assist with the cost of childcare. Brighton Beach ELC and Brighton ELC are approved centres with the Department of Education (Commonwealth) and will collect the child care subsidy payments on behalf of families and pass the subsidies by way of fee reductions on the daily child care fees. This will be reflected on your invoices with the breakdown of CCS and GAP payments to make up your total child care cost.
To be eligible for the child care subsidy, your child must attend Brighton Beach ELC or Brighton ELC, be aged 6 months to 6 years, meet residency and immunisation requirements.
The amount of child care subsidy depends on your circumstances, including your family’s income, the hourly rate cap and the hours of activity you and your partner undertake.
We encourage all families prior to booking your child to follow the steps below to ensure there are no delays in accessing your child care subsidy. Should your circumstances change during your time with us, please notify your centre co-ordinator.
