From July 2nd 2018, 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:
The subsidy changes will also coincide with the introduction of a new CCITS, the Child Care Subsidy System (CCSS). The CCSS is designed to be simple and easy to use for families and child care providers alike.
CCS payments may be higher for some families and lower for others. To estimate your subsidy, click here: Estimate Subsidy.
KidsXap’s new CCITS Platform will manage and settle all CCS payments.
The new child care package includes a safety net that provides extra support for vulnerable families. This will replace SCCB, GCCB and JFA/JET. The new CCITS Safety Net will consist of four different payments:
If a child is at risk, a certificate can be submitted to the Government directly through KidsXap. This will allow the child to receive special benefits for up to 6 weeks without determination.

Under the new CCSS CCITS, enrolments will be referred to as an “Arrangement”. There will be four Arrangement types:
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.
From April 2018, all enrolments will be managed and submitted directly through the KidsXap platform.
Submitting your bulk attendance records will now be known as a “Session Report” in the CCSS.
From July 1st 2018, when the new child care package (CCS) comes into effect, Session Reports require sign-in and sign-out times to be submitted with your bulk attendances.
KidsXap will automatically submit session reports to the Government every week. All attendances will record actual sign-in and sign-out times through KidsXap’s Sign-On-Glass Technology.
