I've looked at the CL website but its a bit vague....
Can nannies be classified as approved care and therefore allow parents to claim CCB and CCR?
Any info much appreciated

they can but you would need to go through a government approved agency, you can't with a privately employed nanny or one not through an approved agency. if you're in Vic I can send you the details of an approved agency I've worked with who are excellent

excuse me jumping in but please could you PM me the agency details? This is on my things to do list. I need after school in home care but need to change to an approved agency - the private care costs are killing me
