Secondly, there is a tax and national insurance saving on childcare fees up to a limit of £243 per month per working parent. To take advantage of this, you need to set up a voucher payment scheme with your employer. Sunnyfields already receive vouchers via Edenred, Care-4, Sodexo, Computershare, Fair Care, Fideliti and Kiddivouchers, but we are happy to receive vouchers from other suppliers if needed.
Thirdly, you may be entitled to receive Child Tax Credit (CTC) depending on the amount of income you receive per family. If you are eligible to receive the higher level CTC, then you may also be entitled to a reimbursement of up to 80% of your childcare fees. For more information and to see if you qualify, please call the Inland Revenue helpline on 0845-3003900.
Finally, Sunnyfields are being funded by the Government to offer an ‘Affordable Places Scheme’ to families who receive the higher level CTC for which visual proof is required i.e. a copy of your latest CTC claim form to be updated every new financial year. You can book a minimum of four hours per day for your 0 – 5 year old in accordance with the sessions on offer and subject to availability. You will be charged £3.44 per hour. For more information on this scheme, please arrange an appointment with the Nursery Manager. (Currently suspended by the Government due to lack of funding).
