Tax Free Childcare Scheme

Tax-free childcare is a new government scheme to help working parents with the cost of childcare. 


Eligible parents with children under 12 can get up to £2,000 per child, per year, towards their childcare costs (or up to £4,000 for disabled children under 17).  


Childcare Choices has put together all of the information that childcare providers need to know, including a Communications Toolkit and Video Clip from providers already signed up for the Tax Free Childcare Scheme:
