Child Care Subsidy

Child Care Subsidy Eligibility

In July 2018, the Commonwealth Government rolled out their Jobs for Families Package. A component of this, the Child Care Subsidy, can make early learning more affordable for eligible families. As part of the enrolment process, and prior to commencement at Puss in Boots Early Childhood Learning Centre, each family must ensure that they have a current Child Care Subsidy Assessment Notice. This includes confirming your child’s enrolment at Puss in Boots.

Please use our Child Care Subsidy Calculator to estimate your entitlement.

3. Child Schooling Details
4. Confirm Enrolment

If you have any questions regarding your Child Care Subsidy eligibility, you can visit your local Centrelink Office in person, phone 13 61 50 or access MyGov at www.my.gov.au

Child Care Subsidy Eligibility & Attendance


For families who attend the child care centre five (5) days a week, 10 hour sessions per day, per week will be offered so they fall within 100 hours of subsidy per fortnight.

To be eligible for the sessions your child can attend between the hours of 7.30am to 5.30pm each day.

Attendance outside of these hours is not eligible for the Child Care Subsidy.

For more information please refer to the Morningside Child Care Centre Fee Policy
