Tax-Free childcare

Tax free childcare is a new UK wide government scheme to help working parents with the cost of childcare and will be launched from early 2017. As a school we signed up to receive payments from parents using this account. For parents to apply for 30 hours free childcare they will need to open a childcare service account. This is a single online application for both 30 hours and tax free childcare. More information can be found by clicking here.

The 30 hour offer at Reddish Vale Nursery will be 8.45-3pm Monday to Friday.
