For the purposes of CCB, a session of care is the minimum period of time that an approved service (1.1.A.90) charges a fee for providing child care. Sessions of care details are determined by service providers and based on their opening hours. Depending on charging practices, recipients may be charged for a full session of care even if their child does not attend the whole session.
Example: A child attends care from 3:00pm until 5:00pm and a recipient is charged for the centre's session of 3 hours from 2:30pm to 5:30pm. The recipient is liable for 3 hours of care and is eligible for 3 hours CCB.
