Subsidy for child care

The government provides a subsidy for child care of between $300 to $740 a month, depending on the the household income and per capital income

A higher subsidy is given for full day care for infants below 18 months.

It is a complicated formula

I cannot understand why it has to be so complicated. But it is typical of the approach that is adopted for many subsidies in Singapore.

I also do not understand why there is no allowance for home care.

This subsidy is now under review. It will continue to be a complicated formula.
