To help with the cost of child care, the Federal Government provides the following assistance to families:
Child Care Benefit (CCB) Child Care Benefit reduces the cost of your total child care fees. It is available to you if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending a child care service approved by, or registered with, the Government. There are certain eligibility requirements you must meet to get Child Care Benefit.
Child Care Rebate (CCR)
The Child Care Tax Rebate is additional assistance to you if you are using approved child care for work, study or training related reasons.
Jobs, Education and Training (JET) Child Care Fee Assistance
JET Child Care fee assistance provides extra help if you are a parent on an income support payment and looking for work, studying or starting a job. It will cover most of your child care costs.
