Early Years Funding

Tax-Free Childcare is a government scheme to support working parents with childcare costs.
If eligible, you set up an online childcare account which you can use to pay your childcare provider directly. 

For every £8 you pay in, the government will pay in an extra £2.
You can get up to £2,000 per child per year, or £4,000 for disabled children.
You can use Tax-Free Childcare to pay for:
   • Registered childminders, nurseries and nannies
   • Registered after-school clubs and play schemes - Diptford School
   • Home care workers working for a registered home care agency.

Please do check to see if you qualify for this money-saving scheme.
