Our Fees

The daily fee at MCCCC is $129 per day for Under 3’s and $126 per day for Over 3’s (including kinder). This is the full fee and does not take into account the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), which many families are eligible for. 

MCCCC does not charge for staff Professional Development days. MCCCC also offers a reduced fee for absences of four weeks or more (e.g. for a family holiday) and a 5% discount applies for children who attend the service five days per week.

The CCS is a payment made by the Commonwealth Government to assist families with the cost of child care. (In July 2018, the Australian Government merged the Child Care Rebate (CCR) and the Child Care Benefit (CCB) to create the CCS.) Eligibility for this payment is determined by Centrelink’s Family Assistance Office.

Families must liaise with Centrelink directly or set up a myGov account (my.gov.au), which is the platform linked directly to the CCS.

A claim for CCS must be made for each child in your family enrolled at child care.

Our Happy Families

Both of my daughters have attended Mitchell Street and loved it there. When my second daughter started, the family grouping allowed my older daughter to be with her as she was adjusting to the new space. It was good peace of mind to know that they had each other during the day whilst I was working.
