    I'm going to be honest and say I think the bit of your post I have quoted is a bit un called for. Sure you may not put a 13 month old in care for one day a week, OP sounds as though she could really use it. She stated she felt a bit guilty about it however also said her husband works long hours and she really needs the break.

    My ds goes to daycare one day a week. I go to uni, but he still goes during all the holidays when I have nothing on. He, as an only child has gained heaps from going. I used to work in childcare too, so I can see it from a 'child care workers prospective'.

    Would be worth registering for to find out if you are eligible.
    if you are on paid or unpaid mat leave you are still entitled

    you will get your CCB but not CCR

    No you don't. You have to need to work/study agreement to receive CCR. Trust me, I tried to get CCR on grounds of being mentally unstable.

    taken from centrelink website

    If you are using approved care, you will get up to 24 hours of Child Care Benefit per child per week without having to meet the work, training, study test.

    If you wish to claim between 24 and 50 hours of Child Care Benefit per child per week, you have to show that you and your partner have work related commitments for:

    at least 15 hours a week; or
    30 hours a fortnight; or
    have an exemption.

    Read my post again. I said you need to be working, LOOKING for work, studying or volemteering more than 15 hours a week. You don't get it if your not doing one of the above.

    Nope. I've never had too. The only thing I needed to enter into an agreement for was to increase my hours. Centrelink were the ones who told me I was able to get the CCR.

    do you work at all ? just asking because it seems centrelink have changed it this is off the site

    How do I meet the test for the Child Care Rebate?

    You and your partner only have to participate in work related commitments at some time during a week or have an exemption. No minimum number of hours is required.
