DD has started school this year.  She previously was in a LDC facility.  Now she goes to OOSH with DS.

Looking at the CCR I am receiving fortnightly it looks like I am only getting it for one child - probably DS as he is a continuing enrolment.  

Did I need to tell Centrelink DD was changing facilities?  Is the CCR going to be back paid if I did not do that?

Oh and is the number to call for CCR 136 150 as it says that number is for "Family Tax Benefit, Child Care Benefit, Parenting Payment, Double Orphan Pension, Baby Bonus, Maternity Immunisation Allowance" but I can't see any number for CCR?

I would check with OSC first to make sure they have the correct CRN etc and that they have lodged everything they need to.  CCR will be paid regardless, some people claim it annually so it is not something you are going to miss out on.

When I filled out my OSC form, it had a box to fill in if other siblings were at different daycare.

Your OSC should be able to fix it up.

Well I am hoping I have worked this out.  It is verty strange - I have a letter giving me DD's CRN ... but the CRN in online services is different  shrug.gif

I have had (different) problems previously, so I am thinking she may have duplicate files at Centrelink.

In any case I have asked OOSH to update the details and I have my fingers crossed that will fix it  hands.gif
