In addition to these meals, the children also have the opportunity to participate in cooking activities and the occasional special treat.

Government Subsidies

There are a number of schemes available to parents including;

Child Care Benefit (CCB) – CCB is a means-tested benefit available to parents accessing Outside School Hours Care. The percentage benefit available to a family is determined by criteria including the number of children in care and household income. We automatically lodge claims on behalf of parents, and only bills for the difference.

Child Care Rebate (CCR) – This rebate is available to all families, and entitles families to receive 50% of their out-of-pocket childcare costs up to $7,500 per child per year. This can be claimed as a rebate paid quarterly. Alternatively, you can now arrange to have it paid directly to Suncoast Christian College to reduce your upfront fee payment. If you would like to take up this second option, please contact Centrelink in the first instance, to make these arrangements.
