Childcare

Many parents face the dilemma of how they can afford the cost of childcare and this can often have a bearing on whether or not they continue to work.

Providing Childcare Vouchers can help make a real difference by reducing the cost of childcare through savings in tax and National Insurance. Working parents with children up to the age of 16 can use vouchers to pay for registered childcare – including nurseries, childminders and nannies, after school clubs, holiday play schemes and school boarding costs.
