The Department of Social Services (DSS) describes the Child Care Management System(CCMS) as a national online computer system. All approved child care services are required by family assistance law to operate under the system.

Child care services use the Child Care Management System to record child enrolment and attendance information. They report this data to the Department of Social Services over the internet so the department can calculate fee reductions and pay services on behalf of eligible families.
