Tax Free Childcare to be launched 28 April 2017

23 March 2017

A new Government website has been launched which aims to provide information on the new and existing Government childcare offers.

The childcare choices website has been designed for parents as a quick and simple way of seeing which schemes could provide support for their families. 

Tax-Free Childcare is amongst the offerings detailed on the website and will be introduced on 28 April with a gradual rollout over 2017, with parents of children under two invited to enter the scheme first. Parents can also pre-register for email alerts that will notify them when they can apply for Tax-Free Childcare.

The website also includes the childcare calculator which will allow parents to compare the government’s childcare offers and check what works best for their families.
