We are Child Care Subsidy (CCS) approved!
Our program operates from 7:30pm to 6:00pm for 48 weeks of the year. Our core kindergarten program operates during school term (40 weeks per year). We are CCS approved which means you may be eligible for Federal Government subsidy of the cost of attending our Service.
The amount of rebate is based on:
- your combined income (to give you a subsidy rate) and
- an activity test (to determine how many hours of care you can access at a discounted rate).
However, families who do not meet and are not exempt from the activity test and have a kindergarten aged child who attends kindergarten at a centre-based day care service may be entitled to 36 hours of subsidised care per fortnight. This means our kindergarten program is more affordable and accessible under the new CCS.
