How to manage your Child Care Subsidy during coronavirus (COVID-19)
6 July 2020
Child Care Subsidy (CCS) and Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS) start again from 13 July 2020.
When it starts again, some families affected by COVID-19 will have access to more CCS. We’ll have more details soon.
Fees before 6 April 2020
Your child care service may waive your out of pocket fees between 23 March and 5 April 2020. You should speak to them about this.
Due to COVID-19, you have 20 extra absences per child for the 2019-20 financial year. This means you can get up to 62 absences in the financial year for any reason.
If you pay your fees through Centrepay, remember to check your deductions. You can suspend or cancel them if you need. Use our online help guides to either suspend your deduction or cancel your deduction.
