Depending on your CCB percentage you could be paying as little as $6.29 per session. Below is an example of how little you could pay per session based on your percentage and if you had your Child Care Rebate (CCR) paid to Big Childcare
The Child Care Rebate (CCR) is a payment from the Australian Government that helps working families with the cost
of child care. If you meet the eligibility criteria example: studying or working you can get 50 per cent of your out of pocket child care expenses up to annual limit. The CCR annual limit is $7,500 per child per year. Out of pocket expenses mean the amount you pay for child care after your CCB amounts are taken out.
