Help with Childcare Fees

There are various Government Schemes to help parents with childcare costs including:

The Early Years Education Entitlement is a contribution by the Government towards the cost of your childcare.

The funded contribution is available to Two year old’s whose parent(s) receive benefits. Please call us and we can find out if you qualify.

Three and four year olds are eligible for 15 hours per week of funded childcare if they attend all year or 30 hours of funded childcare per week if they attend term time only.

If you're a working parent with children under 12 (or under 17 for disabled children), you can open an online account to pay for registered childcare. The government will top-up the money you pay into the account. For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2. You can receive up to £2,000 per child, or £4,000 if disabled.

If you, and any partner, are working, or you’re due to start work, and you’re claiming Universal Credit, you can claim back up to 85% of your eligible childcare costs for children under 16. You could get up to £646 a month for one child, or £1,108 for two or more.

Universal Credit is being phased in over the next few years. It will replace a number of existing benefits, including tax credits. Whether you can claim will depend on where you live and your personal circumstances.

Contact the helpline on 0845 300 3900.

In addition to Government funded childcare we also accept childcare Vouchers from your employer. The Government closed the voucher scheme to new entrants in 2018 and the scheme is now only open to those who currently use Vouchers.

Vouchers have been replaced by Tax Free Childcare.

Your employer will need to be registered with one of the childcare voucher schemes. Individual employers have a variety of schemes to choose from, please ask your employer to see if they provide a scheme.
