NOTE: Child Care Benefit (*CCB) is made available through the Family Assistance Office (FAO). All families are eligible for a minimum 16.76% with many families entitled to a higher percentage of up to 110%. This percentage can be worked out on daily scheduled fees to reduce the amount per day you pay. Most families are also entitled to an additional 50% rebate on the reduced fee payable. To reduce the initial out of pocket cost, it is recommended that families elect their rebate be paid 'direct to service' - this election can be made by calling Centrelink.
