Under family assistance law you are obligated to retain all records of attendance for at least 36 months from the end of the calendar year in which the relevant care was provided. This is to confirm that a child for whom CCS is paid actually attended (or was absent) for the hours or sessions of care stated in attendance reports. You are required to retain these records even if your service closes or is sold. State and territory regulations differ and may have different or additional requirements. You may also need to maintain separate records to satisfy insurance, public liability requirements etc as well as protecting yourself against possible future legal action by parents.
