How it works
If you're a working parent, you could get £2 from the government for every £8 you pay for childcare. If you're eligible, you'll get a Tax-Free Childcare account. It works a bit like a bank account, with you and the government paying money in. You can then use this to send money straight to your childcare provider's bank account.
If you're a working parent of a 3 or 4 year old and living in England, you could also get an extra 15 hours free childcare from 3 and 4 year old extended free entitlement. If you're eligible, you'll also get access to an account, where you'll get a code to give to your local authority and childcare provider. When you apply, you'll be considered for both these services through the same application. You'll only be asked to decide which support you want if you're on tax credits or using a childcare voucher or salary sacrifice scheme. You should check what help you could get with childcare costs, using the childcare calculator. This will help you decide which support is best for you.
Use the link to access the government service to apply for Tax-Free Childcare or 3 and 4 year old extended free entitlement. It's one single application but they'll check your eligibility for both. Once you've applied, you can also use this service to access your childcare service account.

As a parent juggling the demands of work and home, you’ll know how important it is to be able to find affordable, reliable childcare. Early Learners accept childcare vouchers as part or full payment of your child's daycare costs - contact your nursery to discuss setting up this as a method of paying your invoice. 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 companies operate childcare voucher schemes.
The vouchers can be used to pay for all types of registered childcare, for example: our registered day nurseries, out of school hour’s clubs or our holiday play schemes. Childcare Vouchers are a great way for employers to give working parents help with dependent children. They can help you find quality childcare to suit the needs of your family – and, because you don’t pay as much tax or National Insurance on Childcare Vouchers.
