The cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable – and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for

For more information about what funding may be available to you go to: Childcare Choices

15 Hours/week Free Government funded Childcare

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year

30 Hours/week Free Government funded Childcare

You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take) if your child is 3 to 4 years old.

Tax-free childcare scheme

The Government-backed Tax-Free Childcare scheme gives eligible working families 20% off childcare costs. Once you have opened an online Tax-Free Childcare account, the Government adds £2 for every £8 you pay into your Government Gateway account. You will then pay your childcare from your Gateway online account, to benefit from the government scheme.

Childcare Vouchers

Unfortunately, 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 this option is no longer available to you.

If you have already signed up to the scheme before 4th October 2018, then you can continue to benefit from this scheme. We accept all major Childcare vouchers.
