From July 2nd 2018, the CCB and CCR have been replaced by a single means tested payment: the Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
The amount of subsidy that families now receive is based on three things:
The subsidy changes also coincided with the introduction of a new CCITS: the Child Care Subsidy System (CCSS). The CCSS is 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 CCITS platform and CCS software manages and settles all CCS payments.
The new child care package includes a safety net that provides extra support for vulnerable families. This has replaced SCCB, GCCB and JFA/JET. The CCITS Safety Net consists of four different payments:
If a child is at risk, a certificate can be submitted to the Government directly through the KidsXap CCS software. This will allow the child to receive special benefits for up to 6 weeks without determination.

Within the CCSS software, enrolments are referred to as an “Arrangement”. There are four Arrangement types:
New enrolments are classified as 200A Arrangements and require approval by the Guardian on the MyGov website within 14 days.
Any changes to existing enrolments are classified as 200D Arrangements and do not require approval by the Guardian.
The KidsXap CCSS Software platform is automated for enrolment management interfaces, saving time and avoiding errors.
Submitting bulk attendance records is now known as a “Session Report” in the CCSS.
From July 1st 2018, Session Reports require sign-in and sign-out times to be submitted with your bulk attendances.
KidsXap CCSS software automatically submits session reports to the Government every week. All attendances record actual sign-in and sign-out times through KidsXap’s Sign-On-Glass Technology.
