Tax Free Childcare

Tax Free Childcare is a government scheme designed to help working parents with childcare costs. It is available to working parents of children aged 11 and under (17 and under if your child has a disability).

The scheme allows eligible parents to set up an online Tax Free Childcare Account. You can pay into this account whenever you choose, and this can be used to pay your childcare provider directly.

For every £8 you pay into the account, the government will add £2. You can get up to £500 every 3 months (£2000 a year) for each of your children or up to £1000 every 3 months for a child with a disability.

At Children’s Corner Childcare we work in line with this scheme so our fees can be paid directly through your Tax Free Childcare Account.
