Looking for an exciting way to keep your children entertained over the school holidays?
The School Holiday Program runs out of Bellbird Park Indoor Centre in Drouin.
Once we have the program available for the next school holidays, they will be published here.
Child Care Subsidy
Important Information about the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) as at March 2019
To receive the new CCS, you will need to give Centrelink extra information using your Centrelink online account through myGov.
Many families are currently unaware that Centrelink automatically ceases any Child Care Subsidy (CCS) for families who have not attended for 8 weeks.
What does this mean for me?
If you are only using our program during school holiday periods, your bookings are more than 8 weeks apart. This means your CCS will have stopped and won’t automatically apply to your account for the upcoming program.
What do you need to do?
To make it easy for you, and to ensure there will be no surprises when you receive your statement, there are a few steps you need to complete to re-activate your CCS:
• Book at least one day in the program before the 1st of April (so we know that you are attending again).
• Let us know at the program that you completed this step so we can update your account.
• After the 1st April log into your MyGov account and confirm your enrolment.
Step-by-step instructions on how to do this are here
When you have completed this step, let us know and we will be able to apply your subsidy.
Why can’t I do it straight away?
If you try to confirm your enrolment before the 1st of April, Centrelink will cease your CCS again due to non-attendance at the program and we will need to repeat the process again.
We apologise for adding things to your to-do list, but we want to ensure that by the time statements come out and your account is debited, CCS is applying as it should.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
