Mommy thunder9595: Need help on govt grants

Postby thunder9595 » Thu Mar 24, 2011 1:05 pm

HI All,
I am new to the forum.
I stay at Upper Serangoon so I decided to join this club. :D

I need some help on the "Working Mothers Grant", I think that is what it is called.b :?
I have a 3 year old boy currently attending nursery 1 in PLMC.
Many people tell me I can apply for Working Mothers Grant and shelve off $300 from the school fees.... I tried searching for info in the internet but could not find anything...
Can someone help me please......
Thanks a million!

if your child is singaporean and u r working(full/part time), when u apply for the nurdert, the teacher should tell u this as the deduction will done automatically. This is my experience.

for part time working i tyink is $150 reduction, $300 for full time working mum <-- this is for childcare . for few hours/half day nursery i think don't have much deduction.

Hope this helps.

To Micollh and Augmum,
Thank you for all your information!! :D
FYI I will be marching down my son's nursery asking the teacher about it because they had never mentioned it to me before :x

And To LKVM and BlurBee,
Thank you for welcoming me to the club! :wink:

Hi thunder9595!

I think you're referring to the centre -based childcare and infant-care subsidy. Details are attached: http://www.childcarelink.gov.sg/ccls/uploads/Subsidy_Brochure_Orange_12Oct09.pdf

It only applies to childcare centers and not kindergartens.
I used to get the subsidy for my DS1 who was in a kindergarten programme at a childcare centre, but I don't get it for my DS2 as his nursery programme is in a kindergarten.
