Child Care Subsidy - Family Transition


Many of you would be aware that the Child Care Benefit/Rebate process is changing. You will be transitioning from these incentives to the new Child Care Subsidy.

Families who currently receive Child Care Benefit and/or Child Care Rebate as a fee reduction for approved care (paid directly to Killara Kids) will need to complete a streamlined online Child Care Subsidy assessment by providing their 2018-2019 family income estimate, their activity details and confirming their child's enrolment. These details can be provided through your Centrelink online account via or through the Express Plus Centrelink mobile App.

Families currently receiving Child Care Benefit as a lump sum (not paid to Killara Kids) will need to complete a full Child Care Subsidy claim form. 

We have attached a brochure for your information and ask you take the time to read it carefully and follow the appropriate steps to ensure your transition to the new subsidy is seamless.


I am currently undergoing training in the new Subsidy and the transition process. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the process please feel free to get in touch with me.

Many thanks,
Katie Woods
Centre Manager
