    those without the village or with kids with disabilities get the break they need thus lowering the stress on mental health resources and child protection resources.

    its win win for all except perhaps that very small minority who self righteously believe the tax dollars that they pay somehow still belong to them?

    sonja ccb comes directly off the price u pay to the centre. so the centre receive it and u pay the reduced rate. i believe its income tested and how much u get will be based on your family income.

    I have created a separate thread in the social issues section to debate the government funding issue
    (apologies op as this thread has been hijacked).

    Hi grumpy

    Yes I know how it works and no it isn't income tested. M understanding is you only get CCB if you are working, studying, on sickness benefits or on a carer's pension (in a nutshell). I was jut asking how else you can get it.

    I'm not on any of those things and I get CBB. My partner works fulltime and I'm a sahm with one child in kindy (run though a public school) and 2 children at home, one who goes to daycare 2 days a week.

    You get CCB if you earn under a certain amount of money. Child Care Rebate (CCR) is the thing that you only get if you work/study/etc. This just means that half of what you pay is returned you at some point or otehr (depending on which option you elect). Because neither OP or her partner work or study, they will be not be entitled to CCR.

    OP, if money is seriously tight and you NEED this time away from your child, perhaps your partner could study from home if he cannot get a job for some reason (apologies - I haven't read the entire thread yet, so this may have been addressed already). I'm not sure what that would mean, but it mean you may get PPP, FTB A and B, Rent Assistance as well as Austudy if he is eligible.
