Childcare vouchers are a Government approved scheme aimed at helping working parents to afford quality childcare. Parents can save over £900* a year in tax and National Insurance, simply by paying their childcare provider with childcare vouchers instead of cash.
There’s no means-testing, no claim forms and it only takes 10 minutes to register. Both parents can take part, to double their savings. Childcare vouchers can be used for nurseries, pre-school, childminders, nannies, out-of-school care and holiday clubs, for children aged 0 to 15. KiddiVouchers schemes are also simple and convenient for employers, offering employer National Insurance savings of up to £373* a year for every parent who takes part.
