Additional Child Care Subsidy

When times get tough, Kids Club is here to help.

Kids Club is here to help and guide families during difficult financial times, without having to reduce or remove your child from care. We understand that financial situations change, and it isn’t always easy on families.

It is important to us that the children in our care have constant access to our high-quality care, to ensure the best possible start to life.

Additional Childcare Subsidy (ACCS)​

Do you know what your Child Care Subsidy (CCS) should be? Are you claiming your full benefits?​

Life is super busy and that leaves little time for already busy families to understand all the ins and outs of the benefits that they could be eligible for when it comes to their Child Care Subsidy (CCS).

We understand there is a lot to process and that is why we have developed the Kids Club Calculator which can generate an estimate for you to make it easier to understand your options and what you could be missing out on.

We keep repeating that we're so glad we found a spot here when it first opened. Our kid is about move on to kindergarten, and literally grew up at this place, since he was a year old. We didn't even consider free preschool, and went on with Kids Club's education during preschool age. Best child care!

We have had such a positive experience at Kids Club Kensington. I have two children enrolled and my eldest son began the Kinder program this year. I have been blown away by the educational experience he has received. We were unsure if he would be ready for school in 2022 but the program, teachers and experience has made us extremely confident in his readiness to progress. Kids Club Kensington has the best facilities, engaging educational programs and the warmest, friendliest staff team. We have tried other childcare centres in the past but nothing stands to comparison to what we have experience at Kids Club Kensington

Our girl joined Kids Club Kensington early this year. We and she absolutely love it there. Every time we go it has a lovely, calm and happy vibe about it. She is happy and excited to go on her kids club days. I love that she is greeted each day by her lovely teachers and they have consistency of the same teachers in their room everyday. At 3.5yrs she has learnt her alphabet and is learning letter recognition along with many other things to prepare her school, she has also developed a love of Science from her teacher doing experiments. The environment is amazing with so many varied activities and learning experiences. Highly recommend kids club Kensington.
