Childcare vouchers

Save money on your childcare costs

Childcare Voucher Scheme closure - Order vouchers by September payroll

Due to government changes our Childcare Vouchers Scheme had to close to new joiners or those who had exceeded a 12 month break from the 4th October 2018.

New parents now have the choice of using:

The government’s Tax Free Childcare Scheme

The University’s Workplace Nursery Scheme

Our scheme

How can I save money by using the KiddiVoucher's scheme?

Your savings will depend on the amount of childcare vouchers you order and the amount of tax and National Insurance you normally pay.  Childcare voucher legislation changed in April 2011, so your savings will also depend on whether you joined the University’s childcare voucher scheme before or after this date. Use the KiddiVouchers savings calculator to know exactly how much you will save.

What can childcare vouchers be used for?

Childcare vouchers can be used to pay for many kinds of childcare, including: nurseries, playgroups and pre-school; registered childminders; after-school clubs and breakfast clubs; holiday play schemes and nannies and au-pairs.

What are the scheme rules?
