Additional childcare allowance reintroduced


From 9 November onwards, pupils from grades I to III will also be taught remotely. Therefore, the government has decided to reintroduce the additional childcare allowance.

Additional childcare allowance, rules, parents entitled

The significant increase in the number of cases of Covid-19 in Poland in recent weeks has led the government to decide to extend remote learning to the youngest schoolchildren from Monday 9 November. However, nurseries and kindergartens will continue to operate.

As a result of the new regulations, the additional childcare allowance returns and will be available for the period from 9 November to 29 November 2020.

The additional childcare allowance - who is entitled to it?

The additional childcare allowance will be granted under the previously applicable rules, that is:

  • to the parents of children under 8 years of age if their school or other institution has been closed,
  • to the carers of disabled children:

- of up to 16 years old who have a disability certificate,

- of up to 18 years of age who have a degree of severe or moderate disability,

- of up to 24 years of age, who have a certificate of need for special education,

  • to the parents or carers of adult persons with disabilities who are released from work because of the need to care for such a person.

The childcare allowance is granted if:

  • the school, kindergarten, nursery or children's club attended by a child or adult with disabilities is closed because of COVID-19
  • the above-mentioned facilities cannot provide care due to a temporary reduction of their activity in relation to the coronavirus
  • the above-mentioned facilities are open only to a limited extent
