Childcare voucher schemes extended
Childcare Voucher schemes can save families up to £2,000 a year on childcare costs. Voucher schemes were due to close to new applicants in April but the Government has recently extended this for another six months. Childcare Vouchers will eventually be replaced by Tax-Free Childcare.
Bournemouth Council recommend that parents check which scheme suits their family finances best and if able, take advantage of joining a childcare voucher scheme whilst they still can. Find out more.
Could you spare a few minutes to complete the 30 hours Childcare survey?
In September last year, the Government introduced 30 hours childcare funding for working parents with 3 and 4 year old children. We are seeking the views of parents on the impact of this new initiative.
Please help us by completing a short survey. It is completely anonymous and will only take a few minutes. The closing date is Friday 18 May. Thank you for your time.
