Changes to the Child Care Subsidy and Getting an Estimate
From 10 July 2023, the Child Care Subsidy changes with a higher family income limit, increases in the percentage rate of the subsidy, and an increase in the standard hourly rate that is used to calculate the CCS.
While individual circumstances vary, the effect of these changes to the CCS means that even with increased fees we estimate that most eligible families will still be better off.
In the meantime, the Starting Blocks Child-care Subsidy calculator can help you to estimate what your out-of-pocket expenses will be.
