What are childcare vouchers?

Employees can choose to spend up to £243 a month1 of their gross salary, before tax and National Insurance, on vouchers towards the cost of registered childcare. 

The benefits of setting up a childcare voucher scheme

  • Allows you to access competitive rates as a GROUPCARE practice member
  • Improves your corporate reputation as a family friendly employer
  • Is relevant for all staff with children 15 and under (16 if child is registered disabled)
  • Assists you in the recruitment and retention of staff
  • Helps reduce absenteeism of staff taking days off for childcare
  • Improves staff morale through recognising the need for a work-life balance

How can the vouchers be used?

The vouchers can be used for all types of Ofsted registered childcare such as nurseries, after school clubs and summer clubs. 

What can employees save?
