Employer Paid ECE Tuition Fees
An applicant who received funding from his or her employer (either past or current) must state
below the amount of funding paid by both parties.
If an employer is applying for reimbursement of ECE tuition fees paid on behalf of an employee
(either past or current) then an application form must be submitted by the individual who
completed the training. This form must be signed by both the employee and the employer.
The maximum amount of funding available is $3,000 per person.
When the paid ECE tuition fees have been shared by both the employee and the employer then
the Early Learning and Child Care Trust Fund will reimburse the employee first up to a maximum
of $3,000. If the employee is reimbursed less than $3,000 then the employer is eligible to apply
for the balance. For example:
Tuition fees are $2,600 divided equally by the employee and employer. The employee
would receive $1,300 and the employer would be eligible for $1,300.
Tuition fees are $5,000 and are paid only by the employer. The employee would receive
$0 and the employer would be eligible for $3,000.
Tuition fees are $10,000 divided equally by the employee and employer. The employee
would receive $3,000 and the employer would not be eligible for reimbursement.
If you received any funding from your employer then the following information must
be provided:
Cost of ECE Certificate or ECE Diploma:

Amount paid by employee:
