Children are split into 2 program areas: Junior (Kindy- Year 2) and Senior (Year 3-6).

  • be paid directly to providers to be passed on to families
  • be simpler than the current multi-payment system
  • be better targeted and provide more assistance to low and middle income families. To determine your CCS eligibility and entitlement, please check out this Child Care Subsidy Information
