childcare grants

my partner income is around 23k plus, I got the maximum maintenance loan but no parent learning allowance . I got 5k as child grant with 2 kids whinch is not near enough.
2ndly since the grants says entitlements for every week, does it mean childcare can't be paid per month cos my kids nursery wants monthly payments
I urgently needs clarification.
thanks

Hi there, we base this off the 21/22 income figures so the entitlement would be correct based on the threshold. The only way to do a reassessment is if they expect their income to drop 15% or more in the current tax year.

Hi there,

If they are advising that the entitlement letter with the breakdown on the 2nd page is not enough, you would need to contact us via live chat or phone to request a manual entitlement letter is sent to you. Please note, this can take 14 working days then up to 7-10 working days for the letter to arrive with you.
