Rebates and Benefits

Gan Izzy Vacation Care operate as an approved Vacation Care allowing you to receive generous government benefits, specifically the Child Care Rebate (CCR)which covers 50% of the fees and is NOT means tested. Furthermore, you can opt to have the rebate paid directly to service thereby only being charged the gap fee. The majority of families are eligible for the rebate (see details below).

For those on a lower income there is also the Child Care Benefit (CCB), which provides an additional small reduction in fees.

In order to receive the payments we will need you to fill in the CRN numbers and some other relevant information on the enrolment form (or they can be provided at a later date). In addition, the department now require immunisations to be up-to-date for any rebates or benefits to be paid.

If you are not certain whether you are registered for these payments, please contact the Department of Human Services (Centrelink) on 136 150 or login through my.gov.au and mention that you have a school-aged child who will be attending an approved vacation care.
