Hey there @Jennfromoz
I can't say for sure what payment she will get as I'm not sure of all the circumstantial details though I did find a fact sheet (which I've linked here) which says "The Parenting Payment is paid to the primary carer of a child under eight. Conditions apply, including income and asset limits."
I'll also link The Payment Finder on the Centrelink website which could be helpful to go through.
Sometimes it can also be helpful to call - though I do understand that this often means a lot of time spent on hold! But if you wanted to call them for further information the number for Parenting Payment inquiries is 136 150 that phone line is open Mon – Fri: 8 am – 8 pm
I hope this is helpful, feel free to let us know how you go
