Child Care Benefit & Rebate

To be able to claim Child Care Benefit (CCB) as a reduced day care fee our service will now require:

Full name, CRN and Date of Birth of the claiming parent Full name, CRN and Date of Birth of each child attending our program Please make sure that details supplied to us are the same as registered with Centrelink. Failure to provide this information may result in full fees being charged.

If you are not currently registered with Centrelink and have not tested your eligibility for Child Care Benefit, it is in your best interest to do so as most families are entitled to some level of assistance.

In addition all families are eligable for up to 50% out of pocket expenses through the CCR making the program even more affordable.


This form is to be completed for every child once every calendar year. Includes personal information, medical information, emergency contacts etc. Form can be submitted at any time, but must be submitted prior to a booking being made. Due to DHS requirements, the enrolment form must be handed in at our centre so that staff can sight your child's immunisation record, health record and birth certificate - these must be original and a copy kept on file.

Can't find your Immunisation Certificate? You can download a copy from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register.


Form is to be completed for every child each holiday program. Form will be available approximately 3 weeks prior to each vacation period. Bookings will open approximately 2 weeks prior to each vacation period.
