Child Care Subsidy Calculator

The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a government subsidy that offers financial assistance to help cover the cost of childcare. How much you receive depends on your income, activity, and the daily fees charged by your childcare provider. Knowing your CCS entitlements is critical, because it helps you understand how much care you can access and what your out-of-pocket expenses will be.
