Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

The Government recognises how important early learning is for your child’s social and cognitive development.
They assist eligible families to access early learning by offering the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), which can subsidise up to 85% of the cost of up to 100 hours of care a fortnight.

The CCS is determined by:

  • Your family’s household income
  • Your child’s age
  • Activity hours

To learn more, visit the Department of Human Services website here.

Casual Bookings

We understand your family may need flexibility when it comes to early learning, that’s why we’re delighted to offer casual bookings.
If you need an extra day of care once in a while, you can easily make a casual booking at the same price as your permanent day.

Casual bookings offer children great opportunities to gain additional learning experiences in their week.

Holding Fee

A “holding fee” is a small $50 deposit to secure your child’s place at Clyde North Tuckers Road YMCA ELC.
Once our centre is open, your $50 will be credited to your account.
