Outside School Hours Care is a government-subsidised program providing supervision and fun for primary school children before and after school by experienced Child Care Coordinators.
There are a number of schemes available to parents including;
Child Care Benefit (CCB) – CCB is a means tested benefit available to parents accessing Outside School Hours Care. The percentage benefit available to a family is determined by criteria including the number of children in care and household income.
Child Care Rebate (CCR) – This rebate is available to all families, and entitles families to receive 50% of their out-of-pocket child care costs up to $7,500 per child per year. This can be claimed as a rebate paid quarterly.
