Universal credit of £3420 for nursery placements

Social care costs are stretched as it is a very diverse area of funding. The Child allowance has been 'means' tested which is understandable. Now Social Care is funding £3420 to parents of Pre school children to help pay for childcare. Should this not be 'means' tested? If it was then it could save a huge amount of funding.

Why the contribution is important

Offering 'means' tested allowences for childcare is important. For those that can afford childcare then should they receive £3420? For those on minimal wage/low income then yes this will be hugely beneficial
