What are Government Childcare Vouchers?
In April 2005, the Government introduced Childcare Vouchers, to help parents benefit from these savings, earning them extra disposable income, with new limits being introduced in April 2006.
A Childcare Voucher scheme can only be used as part of an employee benefit given by an employer. Employees elect to take up to a maximum of £55 per week (£243 per month) of their salary as Childcare Vouchers. The amount chosen does not attract Tax or National Insurance contributions.
The amount of Tax and National Insurance contributions each parent will save with Childcare Vouchers depends on their current salary. More information can be found at http://www.direct.gov.uk/childcare. I am happy to accept voucher schemes and payment by any method providing it falls within the terms of my contract.
Registered provider for Early Years Education Funding:
I receive “Nursery Educational funding” (NEF) from Somerset County Council. This enables parents of children age 3 & 4 years old to have free childcare for up to 15hrs per week. Some 2 years old may also be eligible for Early Years Educational funding from Somerset County Council which I am also able to provide. Let me know if you need more information.
