Centrelink online account help - Confirm your child’s enrolment details for Child Care Subsidy

Instructions on how to confirm your child’s enrolment details for Child Care Subsidy.

If you’ve submitted a claim for Child Care Subsidy, you may still need to confirm your child’s enrolment details.  If you need to do this, it will appear as an outstanding task in your Centrelink online account in myGov.

We’ll cancel your enrolment details in our system if your child has not attended child care for 14 continuous weeks. If we do this, we’ll stop paying your subsidy. Read more about if we cancel your enrolment details.

If your child attends the service again in the future, your provider will need to resubmit your child’s enrolment details. Once they’ve done this, you’ll need to confirm your child’s enrolment online. If the details are wrong or missing, you need to ask your provider to send this information to us. Once they’ve given us these details, you need to confirm them online.

We can only pay Child Care Subsidy to your child care provider if you’ve confirmed these details.
