There has been a change to the Student Finance payment process from the 2019/20 academic year.
As a student, you will need to open a Childcare Grant Payment Service account (CCGPS). The CCGPS is an online platform enabling parents to manage their Childcare Grant by authorising and sending payments to childcare providers electronically.
Paying your childcare provider:
- You’ll be contacted each time your childcare provider sends a request for payment.
- You just need to sign in, check that the amounts are correct, and approve it.
- If you approve the costs submitted by your childcare provider, the payment will be taken from your Childcare Grant balance and paid directly to them.
