It is useful to be aware of what financial help is available to fund your child’s nursery care. Outlined below are details of the assistance which may be available to you. Our managers will be happy to discuss these in more detail if you wish.
Early Years Free Entitlement
We are registered with Nottinghamshire County Council to provide 15 hours a week of Early Years Free Entitlement for 3 to 4 year olds. Our staff can give you more information on your free entitlement.
Childcare vouchers is a scheme some employers offer to help working parents save on registered childcare costs. Childcare vouchers are not means tested and are available to all working parents whose employers operate childcare voucher schemes. These schemes can save you National Insurance and income tax as a set monthly amount can be deducted from your salary and used to provide childcare vouchers for the same amount. This amount is deducted from the gross salary and is exempt from National Insurance and Income Tax. Our nurseries accept childcare vouchers.
Tax Credits (child benefit)
Nine out of ten families are eligible for some financial assistance through the Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit. The amount you receive will depend on your circumstances. Working Tax Credit includes a childcare element to help families who are working and spending money on childcare.
