Childcare funds

Childcare funding is available to assist with the cost of childcare with registered childcare providers while you attend college classes or college placements or complete college course work remotely. As funds are limited, there is a cap on the amount of childcare that can be paid to you. Therefore, please be aware that your childcare costs may not be covered in full. 

Childcare funding is paid direct to your childcare provider on receipt of completed childcare timesheets. Childcare timesheets will be sent out to your childcare provider if a childcare award is made to you. Please note that you are responsible for paying your childcare costs until the childcare award has been made to you.
