Child Care Subsidy Calculator

There's no doubt about it, working out the cost of child care is tricky! At we have a range of articles and  resources to help you calculate the cost of care, and our Child Care Subsidy (CCS) Calculator is another tool to support families.

Answer the questions to learn how much Child Care Subsidy you may be entitled to and remember, the amount received depends on:

  • How much work or recognised activity you and your partner do each fortnight. For couples, entitlement is based on the partner doing the lower amount of activity.
  • Your combined family income.
  • The fees you pay for child care (hourly rate caps apply for each service type).
