    Default School schedule and subsidy?

    My school schedule at the moment has my in-class lectures on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And I enrolled in some online classes as well.

    I'll be applying for the childcare subsidy once my little one is here. I have to submit my timetable and confirmation of registration with my application, so I'm assuming I can only get subsidized childcare for the days I have classes.

    The baby's father is not involved, so I'll be juggling school and a newborn by myself. Should I keep my schedule as is (and only get 2 days of childcare) or perhaps spread my schedule out over more days in case I need to run errands, do chores or just sleep and keep my sanity? Only problem is, if I do that, then I would only have 1 to 3 hours of class/day? Will they subsidize that since most childcare centres charge per day?

    Are you part-time or full-time?

    Full-time w/ the amount of courses I'm taking altogether but it works out to a few hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays because I'm taking online courses.

    I take 60% course load and get fulltime coverage. Ask for fulltime!
    LondonMoms has really gone downhill, ever since they started chit chatting in the home and garden forum. There is a place for chit chat, people!!!

    I think the reason they ask for your schedule is to confirm you're really taking what you say you're taking, not to decide when you get childcare. You should get as much childcare as you need.

    I went through the same paperwork for my DD when I was in school. (Never id get the subsidy, but thats another story of its own and won't affect your chances). They want you schedule as confirmation of enrollment in the classes. If you are 60% course load or more, you should get subsidy for full time care.
