Child Care Subsidy is a government payment that supports families to pay for child care services. The Child Care Subsidy will cover up to 85% of eligible family's fees each fortnight. Not sure if you're eligible? Check out the Centrelink Website to find out what you could be entitled to.
To provide the best possible care for your children, and the best possible service to you and your family, we need to get to know you a bit. Contact us to schedule a visit so you can see our services, and we can explain the enrolment process to you.
We will give you an enrolment pack and assist you to complete it. Enrolment is a regulated process that requires quite a bit of information from you, including:
It may seem like a lot of information, but most of it is a regulatory requirement and it is all used to keep your children safe. All information is held confidentially and cannot be accessed by anyone without authority.
We cannot confirm an enrolment unless it has been fully completed with all required information and medications held on site.
Once your forms have been completed, we will enter your information into our Qikkids software. During this process we add the sessions that you have requested to your booking patterns and submit your CCS enrolment notice. If you are not entitled to CCS, this is the last step for you!
If you are entitled to CCS, we will know at this point if there are any problems with linking your CCS to your account and we will contact you if we need more information or if you need to contact Centrelink.
Once your CCS has been linked, Centrelink/Department of Human Services will create an enrolment that you need to confirm. To do this, log in to your Centrelink profile online and check that we have entered your enrolment information correctly. When you confirm that enrolment information, your Child Care Subsidy will be applied to your account with us.
Once we have entered your information into Qikkids and have your start dates, you are ready to attend care. It's important to note that Child Care Subsidy is only applied from the first day your child physically attends - so you need to be really clear on your actual start date. Give us as much notice as possible if your start date is likely to change.
The same rule applies when ceasing your enrolment with us - Child Care Subsidy is only paid up until the last day that your child physically attends.
Care arrangements change over time. To change your booking patterns, please give us as much notice as possible to make the change. Make sure that you check your statement to ensure that changes have been made when you have requested them!
