DfE launches website ahead of tax-free childcare launch
Monday 3rd April, 2017
The government’s tax-free childcare scheme will officially get under way on 28 April, with parents able to pre-register through a new website dedicated to childcare entitlements, the Department for Education has announced.
From next month parents of children under the age of two will be able to access the tax-free childcare scheme, whereby the government tops up £2 for every £8 parents pay into it. By the end of the year the scheme will be available to all eligible parents of children under the age of 12, or under 17 if disabled.
