Clunes Out Of School Hours - After School and Vacation Care

Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Management System (CCMS)

Child Care Benefit helps families and carers with the cost of child care for approved service providers.

Clunes Uniting Care OOSH Service is a CCB approved child care service. The Child Care Management System (CCMS) is a way for the Australian Government to ensure that families are getting their 50% Child Care Rebate and CCB fees correctly calculated.

FAMILIES MUST COMPLETE THE ENROLMENT FORM AND PROVIDE BOTH CHILD AND FAMILY REFERENCE NUMBERS AND DATES OF BIRTH. ALL INFORMATION ON THE FORM MUST MATCH THE DATA WITH THE FAMILY ASSISTANCE OFFICE (FAO). IF YOU DO NOT KNOW YOUR NUMBERS PLEASE CALL THE FAO ON 13 61 50.

There are 2 ways to claim CCB:

You can have your fees reduced by the service claiming the CCB on your behalf. The amount of benefit will be deducted from the amount of your childcare fees. You then pay the difference (gap fee).

or

You can choose to pay full child care fees throughout the financial year and receive your CCB as lump sum after the end of the year.

There is currently a 50% tax rebate on out of pocket fees above CCB this is claimed through the Family Assistance Office and called CCTR. Plans are under way for this rebate to also be deducted from weekly childcare fees if requested.
