Childcare Vouchers and Tax Free Childcare

Childcare Vouchers and Tax-Free Childcare

We accept childcare vouchers and have signed up to Tax Free Childcare. Parent's can't use Tax Free Childcare at the same time as they receive childcare vouchers, Universal Credit or Tax Credits. However, 30 hours funding can be received alongside these schemes.


Tax-Free Childcare

Parent's will be able to open a new childcare account. For every £8 a parent pays into their childcare account, the government will pay in an extra £2. Parents can get up to £2,000 government support per child per year towards their childcare costs.
