F.A.Q'S

Am I eligible for Child Care Rebate and/or Child Care Benefit?

Child Care Benefit

To be eligible for the Child Care Rebate (CCB), families are required to register their details with the Department of Human Services. Eligibility is based on the combined income of both parents as well as other requirements.

Child Care Rebate

The Child Care Rebate is not income tested, which means most Australian families receive at least a 50% reduction on their fees. The rebate is capped annually at $7,500 per child. Families have two options with regards to how they receive the rebate:

1. Rebate is deducted from your fortnightly fees by Early Explorers.

2. Rebate is paid into your account from the Department of Human Services after your child care fees have been paid.
