Introduced on 2 July 2018, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is a government fee relief program providing assistance to families for the cost of child care.
To qualify for the CCS, families must meet several criteria. The CCS amount will differ for each family and is determined using a number of factors such as combined family income. Subsides are paid directly to your provider and will be passed on to you as a fee reduction.

My working hours can vary week to week and I need flexibility. With Extend, I can book with short notice and have the confidence that my children will be looked after with care and compassion. It’s a great service empowering parents like me to go to work and still be able to provide my children with the chance to learn and have fun.
There are a number of things we love about Extend, I think the staff is one of the things we love the most. It’s really comforting that we can drop our daughter off and know that she’s with really lovely people.. Over time, she has formed a fantastic bond with all the educators.
I would recommend Extend’s services 150 per cent – it’s a complete package. The Extend service is important to us. My husband and I have professional careers, we start early in the morning and work late into the evening. The capacity for him to be in a supportive, caring and safe environment, is obviously paramount to us.
Extend feels like an extension of the family to be honest, they care so deeply about the children that they turn up to any of the events that my son is in and they’re standing there cheering him on as well, it’s an environment that the educators take great time and effort to culture.
