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.
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.

Read below for further information and to see how you may be illegible.
The Additional Childcare Subsidy (ACCS) is designed to support families experiencing significant temporary financial hardship due to unique circumstances such as recent job loss, caring for an ill family member, or the recent loss of a family member. If you’re eligible, the extra support means your child can still attend the centre, and Kids Club can continue to support your family with care when most in need.
This Government support payment is for families currently receiving Jobseeker or parenting payments, training, re-skilling or returning to work. This support payment can pay up to 95% of your childcare feels whilst you get back to work or are studying or training to find new work.
For grandparents who receive income support and are caring for a grandchild (65% of the time) may be eligible for the Additional Childcare Subsidy (ACCS) support payment.
