Please state sessions required and the date you wish your child to start. The registration fee is paid to cover administration and allocation of places. If a place in nursery has been offered we require a 2 week deposit to secure the place which is non-refundable if settling sessions have been booked. Please note your child will not be placed on our waiting list until we receive the registration fee and deposit.

Childcare Employment Vouchers


Childcare employment vouchers are a scheme that means the first £55 a week (or £243 a month) of your childcare costs is taken from your gross (pre-tax) income. This means there's no tax or National Insurance to pay on this part of your salary.

The vouchers cover childcare up to the age of fifteen, and they are useable with any Nursery or Child minder who is registered and regulated by Ofsted.

Unfortunately not all employers run a scheme; check with your personnel department to see if yours does, however if they don't its easy to persuade them.

The first thing to say is, providing you with Childcare vouchers doesn't cost you employer money, in fact it should save them money, which is a great way to start the persuasion. The gain for firms is simple: they don't pay National Insurance on the vouchers, which mean they gain 12.8% on the vouchers too.

The administration is normally done through a nursery voucher company. Either your employer or the company will dole out the vouchers; some companies will allow you to conveniently access them online.

You can sacrifice as much of your salary as you want in return for vouchers but only the first £55 a week or £243 per month will be exempt from tax and NI. However if you're a couple, both of you can apply for the vouchers potentially saving you £1600 - £2000 a year in childcare costs.
