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. Our simple CCS Calculator is based on FY22/23 subsidies and can help you estimate how much support you could be eligible for.
