How do I claim Childcare Benefit?
Can I switch CCB from one parent to the other?
If you change the account to your partner, you will need to make sure they are assessed for CCB and remember to inform us of their CRN and date of birth.
Can separated parents share the cost of child care?
Does my child's Immunisation status affect CCB?
What is the procedure if my child is absent due to illness?
When your child is away from Kindy, we offer a make up day at no charge (subject to availability) for the day/s he/she has missed attending. We also ask that you notify the Centre as soon as possible if your child is
going to be away. If your child was suffering from a contagious illness, it will be necessary to provide a doctor’s certificate of clearance upon his/her return to kindy. As well, you must record on the sign in sheet that your child was absent due to illness.
Children will be excluded from attending the Centre if they are suffering from:
- Vomiting/Diarrhoea – regardless of the cause, they must be excluded for 24 hrs from the last symptom;
- Conjunctivitis – children must be away from the centre until treatment has commenced and discharge from the eyes has ceased (a medical clearance is needed to return);
- Infectious Diseases – children must stay away for the designated period as recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council (a medical clearance is needed to return). To view the recommended minimum exclusion periods for infectious conditions for schools, pre schools and child care centres, click here.
- Headlice – children excluded from the centre until the first treatment has been completed and no live lice are seen.
Children will be excluded when they are not immunised and an outbreak of an immunised disease occurs. Likewise, if child immunisations records are not current with the office staff and an outbreak of an immunised disease occurs.
