Subsidy - Department of Education, Skills and Employment

Dear Families

In response to COVID-19, child care is free. This means Centrelink is not currently paying Child Care Subsidy (CCS).

If you were getting CCS before 6 April 2020, you won’t need to do anything for it to start again when the free child care period ends.

If you recently started using child care, you should find out about CCS.

What is CCS?
CCS helps with the cost of approved child care. Centrelink pays this subsidy directly to your child care provider to reduce the fees you pay.

Absence Notification

Attention! Please be advised Kidz Klub is now operating before and after school care as per normal and require you to manage your child’s absences through the My Family Lounge app, an email with specific dates or ring and notify us on a daily basis before 2:30 pm. We are back to only being able to register absences for the current week in our system whereas you are able to mark absences as far ahead as the app will let you. Emails stating 'until further notice' or 'until school goes back' are not acceptable notifications as we legally need specific dates.

Outside School Hours and Vacation Care

Kidz Klub Outside School Hours and Vacation Care services offer centre based care for children 5-12 years of age and operates during school terms and school holidays.

Kidz Klub is a warm, safe place for all children and their families. Children look forward to coming to each day because we are providing rich and diverse experiences. We understand the importance of play for children 5 to 12 years of age. Play aids in the development of personal, social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills. Some of the experiences offered include group games, various toys, arts, crafts, drama, sport and living skills. A highlight for most children is the exciting play structure we have. Our program ensures that all children attending have the opportunity to develop and participate in all the activities on offer. The activities allow them to grow their sense of self-worth and their sense of belonging to a community.
