Fees, Rebates and Benefits
At Kids Choice Deni, we are aware that cost is one of the top concerns for our families when deciding whether or not to use formal childcare. Fees are dependent on things such as the number of days in care, the age of your child as well as your eligibility for any government subsidies.
We recommend speaking with your Centre Director who will be able to provide you with a quote part of our mission to provide affordable childcare, we are here to assist and guide you in finding the right financial aid.
There are two main subsidies offered by the Australian Government for which you may be eligible. These are the Child Care Rebate (CCR) and the Child Care Benefit (CCB). To find out if you qualify for these subsidies, visit the Department of Human Services website humanservices.gov.au
Child Care Benefit
The Child Care Benefit (CCB) is a payment from the Federal Government that aids eligible families with childcare expenses. It is income-tested and managed by the Family Assistance (FAO). The CCB is subtracted from the full fees, creating a gap fee, which eligible families pay to the centre every week.
To qualify for CCB, you must meet the following requirements:
- the childcare is approved and registered with the Federal Government
- you and your spouse fulfil the residency and child’s immunisation requirements
- you are the person paying for the childcare fees
Child Care Rebate
The Child Care Rebate (CCR), unlike CCB, is not income-tested. If your income is too high to qualify for CCB, you may still be eligible for CCR. It covers up to 50% out-of-pocket costs, reducing your cost up to $7,500 a year. You may obtain the CCR in a quarterly lump sum, or you may have the CCR given directly to the centre to reduce your weekly fees.
How Much CCB And CCR Can You Receive?
Centrelink’s estimator tool allows you to determine whether or not you qualify for CCB and how much this will reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. The estimator also lets you know how much CCR you are entitled to per year.
Other Rebates and Benefits
There are other benefits and rebates offered by the government that you can also qualify for, including Special Child Care Benefit; Pre-school Subsidy; Jobs, Education and Training, and more.
