Welcome to My School Child Care & Kindergarten in Slade Point, Mackay! The team is looking forward to welcoming new parents and children.

To ensure that you have an accurate idea of your childcare fees, it is important to note that the fees for care will vary for each family, depending on your level of Centrelink Child Care Subsidy (CCS). This subsidy is the amount that Centrelink contributes towards your childcare fees, which leaves a ‘gap fee’ payable by parents.

Here is the update information from the Department of Education:

Child Care Subsidy is increasing from July 2023, which means child care will be cheaper for most families. It also means some families previously not eligible for Child Care Subsidy will now get it. This change will provide more support for more families across Australia.

Child Care Subsidy changes include:

  • The family income limit to get Child Care Subsidy is increasing from $356,756 to $530,000 per annum.
  • The maximum amount of Child Care Subsidy is increasing from 85% to 90%.
  • Families earning $80,000 or less will get a Child Care Subsidy rate of 90%.
  • Families earning over $80,000 may get a Child Care Subsidy rate starting from 90%. This will go down by 1% for each $5,000 of income they earn above $80,000. This rate reaches 0% for families earning $530,000.
  • Families earning below $362,408 with more than one child aged 5 or under in care can still get a higher rate for one or more of their children.
  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children can get at least 36 subsidised hours of early childhood education and care per fortnight, regardless of their family’s activity level.

Changes to Family Assistance Law, which give effect to increases in the subsidy, come into effect on 1 July 2023. From 10 July, families will see an increase in CCS
