Child Care Subsidy and public holidays

Thursday 22 September has been declared an official public holiday and National Day of Mourning for Her Majesty The Queen.

Normal public holiday provisions apply:

  • services can submit absences and claim Child Care Subsidy (CCS)
  • providers that charge a family for an allowable absence on this day must collect gap fees from the family.

The CCS Helpdesk will be closed for the national public holiday. It will reopen at 9am on Friday 23 September. You can contact the helpdesk at any time via email.
