    I just went through this when I enrolled DD1 into childcare this year. As I don't work we qualified for the benefit only which is means tested. I was told that to qualify for the rebate which is 50% you need to either work, study or volunteer for at least 15 hours a week.

    I'm a single mum not working at the moment and my fees are $77 per day each for my nearly 3 year old twins (they go one day a week). I pay about $29 each. The rest is covered by the benefit. Hope this helps.

    Most preschools are classed as Registered care not approved care. They are not eligble for the percentage ccb or ccr. There is a small hourly rebate (also confusingly called ccb) you can claim from the FAO if you complete a form. Its under $4 a day. If you have a low income health care card you should get a reduced fee.

    If it is a long day care or registered family day care it will get the rebate.

    It's noted as pre school & early learning. They said it's not.
