Child Care Subsidy:

Transition is compulsory

Commencing July 2, The Federal Government will implement its new Child Care Package. This will replace the two current child care payments. 

The transition cannot happen automatically and you may not receive any subsidy if your assessment is not complete. 

Your YMCA Early Learning Centre will keep you updated every step of the way, check out the information below, FAQ section and remember to check back here for additional updates.

How to transition to the new Child Care Subsidy 

To receive the CCS, you will need to give Centrelink extra information using your Centrelink online account through myGov
If you don’t have a myGov account, you can create one and link your Centrelink online account to it.

Check out our FAQ  section for more information. 


This form is to be completed for every child once every calendar year. Includes personal information, medical information, emergency contacts etc. Form can be submitted at any time, but must be submitted prior to a booking being made. Due to DHS requirements, the enrolment form must be handed in at our centre so that staff can sight your child's immunisation record, health record and birth certificate - these must be original and a copy kept on file.

Can't find your Immunisation Certificate? You can download a copy from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register.


Form is to be completed for every child each holiday program. Form will be available approximately 3 weeks prior to each vacation period. Bookings will open approximately 2 weeks prior to each vacation period.
