How much does Child Care cost?

In Home Child Care is a great option for families who meet the eligibility criteria. However, there are costs involved. Child care cost depends on two things:

1. Fees

Each Service Provider sets their own In Home Child Care rates. This is something you should discuss when choosing an In Home Care Service.
It is important you find a Service and an Educator who can provide the right care for your child at the right price.

2. Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

You must be eligible for Child Care Subsidy (CSS) to help with your fees for In Home Care. You can find out more about this here.
