Work scheme childcare vouchers

Your employer may offer you childcare vouchers to help with your childcare costs. Childcare vouchers are a special Government scheme operated through employers that allows you to pay for childcare from PRE-TAX salary.

At Tiny Tots, we accept childcare vouchers from many different companies. Please check with Angela to see if the company your employer uses has already been set up at Tiny Tots. If it hasn't it is an easy process and can usually be set up fairly quickly.


Please note that funding can be split between more than one setting. If you require any help or information regarding this, please don't hesitate to ask.
