Thank you for choosing Shellharbour Kiama Family Day Care. We look forward to supporting your FDC Educator in providing a safe, happy and rewarding experience for your family. The following information will assist you to correctly enroll your child with our service.
Reducing your Child Care Costs
You must complete the Child Care Assessment with DHS (Centrelink) if you wish to reduce your child care costs by claiming the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and/or the Child Care Rebate (CCR). You can choose to receive your CCB and/or CCR as a fee reduction via your educator OR instruct DHS to deposit it directly into your bank account fortnightly, monthly; quarterly or annually.
Linking your CCB and CCR Benefits to our Service
When you complete your Child Care Assessment you will be issued with two Customer Reference Numbers (CRN’s) - one for the parent and one for the child. You must write both CRN’s on the Enrolment Form. The CRN’s are used to link your entitlements to your child’s attendance sheets sent to us by your educator. Precise linking to DHS data will ensure your educator charges you the correct fees.
IMPORTANT: Reductions to your fees or direct payments made into your bank account will not commence until DHS confirms that your Child Care Assessment is completed and your details are verified in our office. For that reason we highly recommend you complete your Assessment BEFORE your child commences care.
Enrolment Completion Notification
When the enrolment process has been completed we will contact both yourself and your educator via email allowing for your child to commence care.
If you need any assistance completing the attached form or understanding the enrollment process, please don’t hesitate contacting us.
