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 with step-by-step instructions on how to accept the CWA in your booking confirmation email.

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

School Holiday Program Provider Number is: 555 011 014C.

For more information on CCS:

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.

Medication

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