I think you are right that it's only a primary parent. Also, I believe only the lower income earner can claim childcare. For example, I am remarried with another child but had to be the one to claim the childcare expenses as my husband earns more than me. I guess this also applies to who gets the UCCB (or whatever it's called now). That monthly amount only comes to me.
