Child Care Subsidy and accepting the Complying Written Agreement

CCS is a subsidy provided by Department of Human Services (Family Assistance Office (FAO)) to parents of children in approved care. School Holiday Program is an approved service where CCS is applicable.

Parents are required to contact the Department of Human Services - Family Assistance Office to obtain a Customer Reference Number (CRN) for each child and parent, prior to completing the School Holiday Program enrolment form. 

Before you can receive the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), you will need to login to your Xplor account in a Google chrome web browser and accept the Complying Written Arrangement (CWA) which will then send your child’s bookings to your MyGov app for approval through Centrelink so  that the CCS can be applied.

Families new to the School Holiday Program will receive an email to create a password for their Xplor account and we will send you step by step instruction on how to accept the CWA in your booking confirmation email.

Families who have used the Program in January 2019 will still have access to their Xplor account and will need to accept the new CWA from a Google chrome web browser before commencement of the program to ensure you receive the CCS.

Be prepared

Warm Weather Clothing and Sunhat

Lunchboxes

Children must bring a healthy lunch and adequate snacks for morning and afternoon tea.
We recommend sandwiches, cheese, yoghurt, fruit and rice cakes or crackers. There is a fridge available for food storage.

Please refrain from packing nuts or nut products and eggs in your child’s snacks and lunches.

Drink bottle

Children must bring a labelled drink bottle for water.
Children are not permitted to purchase their own food or drinks from vending machines or kiosks.

Medication

All medications must be signed in at the start of each day with a medication form.

Medication must be in original packaging with child’s name and dosage clearly marked on package.

This is especially important for staff to be able to support your child’s individual needs during the program and on excursions e.g. Ventolin.

Emergency evacuation procedure

Educators and children will practice an emergency evacuation drill to follow all required procedures and processes. This includes the initial warning and steps to successfully evacuate the school holiday facilities. The children will then reflect on what 'we did well', 'what we need to do better' and program staff will evaluate this process.
