Subsidy Changes

The CCB and CCR will be replaced by a single means tested payment, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS). The amount of subsidy that families will receive will be based on three things:

  1. Their combined family income
  2. The level of ‘approved’ activity they undertake
  3. The type of child care service they use

CCS subsidy payments may be higher for some families and lower for others. To estimate your subsidy, click here: Estimate Subsidy

How will KidsXap help?

All subsidies will be automated through the KidsXap payments and billing platform. KidsXap is developing a new CCITS compliant billing module which will be released in April to all KidsXap customers.

Child Care Safety Net

The safety net provides extra support for vulnerable families. This includes will replace SCCB, GCCB and JFA/JET. The new CCITS Safety Net will consist of four different payments:

  • Child Wellbeing
  • Grandparents
  • Temporary Financial Hardship
  • Transition to Work

Enrolments

Under the CCITS, enrolments will be referred to as an “Arrangement”. There will be four Arrangement types:

  1. Complying Written Arrangements (CWA)
  2. Relevant Arrangements
  3. Arrangements with Organisation
  4. No Arrangements

New Enrolments will be classified as 200A Arrangements and will require approval by the Guardian on the MyGov website within 14 days.

Existing Enrolments will be classified as 200D Arrangements and will require approval by the Guardian on the MyGov website within 6 months.

How will KidsXap make the 2018 enrolment process easy?

KidsXap features online enrolments that reduces administration time and eliminates manual processes.

With KidsXap’s CCITS enrolment module, services can:

  1. Comply with the 2018 enrolment process
  2. View and manage all information from MyGov directly through KidsXap
  3. Send guardians reminders and update directly through the KidsXap system

Attendance Records

Submitting your bulk attendance records will now be known as a “Session Report”.

From July 1st 2018, Session Reports require sign-in and sign-out times to be submitted with your bulk attendances.

KidsXap’s Sign-On-Glass Technology

New Session Reports are supported by KidsXap’s sign-on-glass technology. This eliminates manual paper-based processes and is included in the core system.

In 2018 Personnel Roles will change. Staff members will need to log onto MyGov and receive a PRODA ID by April.
