Child care subsidy help - I did go through old questions!

Was just wondering if anyone could help clarify a few things with the subsidy (a lot of the old questions - 3+ years on them - talk about the rebate and i'm not sure if it has changed) if my subsidy rate is 80% does that mean the gov will pay the 80% or do I pay the 80% ? I have just started a new job and it's the first time I have needed this service full time but for 3 kids I'm currently paying more then I earn to be at work... Thank you

Don’t forget to factor in the government keep 5% incase of over payments, so you will pay 85 and they will pay the other 15%.

Thank you, I looked everywhere and couldn't find anything that stated that, makes a massive difference $$
