Where a service has commenced operating under CCMS an enrolment is the mechanism which links a child, parent/guardian and service to the DSS system. An enrolment enables attendance information to be submitted by a service and must be created for every arrangement to provide care to a child, regardless of whether or not CCB is being claimed by the family.
If there is more than one arrangement to provide care to a child the service must create multiple enrolments to reflect the different care arrangements, for example, if there is shared care of a child.
Types of enrolment
There are 3 different types of enrolments depending on whether or not CCB is being claimed for the care provided:
- Formal enrolments (18.104.22.168),
- Informal enrolments (22.214.171.124), and
- AMEP/other enrolments (126.96.36.199).
