Childcare Vouchers

Childcare Vouchers is a scheme some employers offer to help working parents save on registered childcare costs. Childcare Vouchers are not means tested and are available to all working parents whose employers operate childcare voucher schemes. These schemes can save you national insurance and income tax as a set weekly amount can be deducted from your salary and used to provide childcare vouchers for the same amount. This amount is deducted from the gross salary and is exempt from national insurance and income tax. Our nursery accepts childcare vouchers from all childcare voucher companies.

Tax Credits (Child Benefits)

Nine out of ten families are eligible for some financial assistance through the Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit. The amount you receive will depend on your circumstances. Working Tax Credit includes a childcare element to help families who are working and spending money on childcare.

Nursery Education Grant

The Government introduced the Nursery Education Grant to provide a free early education place for 3 year olds and all 4 year olds. A grant may therefore be available for your child. The amount available per child changes from year to year depending on government funding. The Nursery Manager will be able to confirm the current amount to you and to explain how the system works.

Additional Cost Savings

In addition to cost savings help from the local government. We also offer the following: Free settling in sessions. Before your child starts nursery, you will be invited with your child to have settling in sessions which are not charged for. This gives you the opportunity to discuss your child’s needs with their key worker.

Refer a friend. If you recommend a friend to our nursery and they join us, we can offer you £100 to use as you wish.

For all the above, please contact the Nursery Management Team for more information.
