Childcare Grant

Hi, Please could someone help?

I am wondering if I will be eligible for the Childcare Grant. I read online that it is means tested. If my partner earns more than what is outlined on the gov website will I not be entitled to any help with childcare costs? I have 2 children, one is 2yrs old and 1 is 5yrs old.

Or will I be entitled to some just not the full 85%?

Thanks

Hi there,

In this case we'd recommend applying for the Childcare Grant anyway: that way, our assessors will be able to confirm if you're entitled to some or any of the grant.

Have you already applied online? When does your course begin?

Thanks, Graeme
