Allowable absences

An allowable absence is one where you can still claim Child Care Benefit for a day when your child is absent. A child is allowed up to 42 absent days per financial year without your Child Care Benefit being affected. You DO NOT need to provide any documentation, eg doctor’s certificate, for the 42 days but any subsquent absences will need to be supported by documentation. Centre fees are payable when children are absent due to illness, holidays and public holidays.
