    You only need to meet the work training study requirement if your children are to be in care for more than 24hrs a week. Anything over the 24 would not be eligible for the benefit, anything under (which the op is) would mean you are eligible.

    Benefit and Rebate are not the same thing.

    Benefit is what you get that reduces the amount of childcare you pay before you even pay it. This will depend only upon how much you earn. A single mother not working, for example, will get 100% and her childcare fees will therefore be much lower than someone who only get 30% childcare benefit thanks to a higher income.

    Childcare Rebate is what you get if you work/study a certain amount. This can be paid to you in a variety of ways depending on which option you choose, but it's basically half of the fees you pay given back to you. You can get it pad in lump sums quarterly or annually or whatever... or you can get it given straight back to your childcare and therefore it comes off how much you pay each week.

    If one parent is home with the kids or whatever, you only get 24 hours worth of childcare benefit paid. This means you'll get the discounted fees for 24 hours worth of care each week (which is usually 2 days in most centres), and if you want to put your child in care any more, you'll have to pay the full fee with no discount at all. You need to work or study over 15 hours a week I believe to get more than 24 hours worth of CCB. This means both you and your partner must study or work more than 15 hours a week to get more than 24 hours worth of CCB each week.

    I hope that somewhat helps?
