Registered Carer Receipts - Chatswood Occasional Child Care Centre is a Registered centre (reference number: 2816 1766 H). We issue the registered carer receipts at the end of the quarter. You can then bring these receipts to the Department of Human Services (Centrelink) in order to make a claim. There is no guarantee that you can claim Child Care Benefit/Rebate. It all depends on your family circumstances.
From 2 July 2018, there will be a new Child Care Subsidy (CCS), which replaces the current child care benefit and rebate. For more information please visit: education.gov.au/childcare
