The Government Close Childcare Vouchers Scheme to New Entrants on the 4th October 2018Unfortunately, the Government closed the Childcare Vouchers scheme to new entrants on 4th October 2018. This means that if you’re a parent looking to join Childcare Vouchers for the first time, or an employer looking to start a scheme in your business for the first time, that option is no longer available to you.
Parent Scheme Overview
Childcare Vouchers are a simply way for you to save up to £933 per year on the cost of using many forms of registered childcare. To find out what qualifies as registered childcare and for lots of other useful information go to our Frequently Asked Questions page.
