Important changes to the Childcare Vouchers scheme

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, or an employer looking to start a scheme in your business for the first time, that option is no longer available to you.

If you or your employees have missed out on the savings from Childcare Vouchers due to the Government decision, you can still have your voice heard by visiting to share your story.

Those parents already on the scheme can continue to benefit from the savings as long as their child remains eligible**, they stay with the same employer, and they have had a wage adjustment and received vouchers within any 12 month period.
