Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

ROOSH is a registered service with Centrelink. Parents and guardians must contact the Family Assistance Office at Centrelink by phone, at a Centrelink office or through your myGov account to confirm your child attends ROOSH.

ROOSH is not responsible to ensure your details are up to date or correct. ROOSH is not able to make any application or changes on your behalf. Families are liable for the full amount of all fees should their CCS be cancelled or recalled.

ROOSH sends enrolment and attendance details for the service each Friday covering the week proceeding. If you are eligible for the Subsidy, your fee statement will show an estimate of the gap fee required. This estimate is based on the previous week’s usage and so the actual charge amount may change. Families are required to pay any difference between the estimate and the actual. If the estimate is less than the payment, the difference will be credited to the next week’s fees (or refunded if it is after your child’s final week of care).

Families must provide ROOSH with their child’s Centrelink Customer Reference Number (CRN) and date of birth and linked parent’s CRN and date of birth. Holding a CRN does not automatically ensure you will receive any subsidy. You must register your and your child’s CRN with the family assistance office for the purposes of child care.
