Government help for childcare

18th Jan 2017

Some of you may already have heard of the new Government scheme starting in 2017 whereby parents can receive a contribution to their child care from the Government.

The Little House will be participating in this scheme. the salient points are:

  • A parent can receive up to £2,000 per year towards child care or £4,000 if their child is disabled.
  • As an example, for every £8.00 that a parent pays, the Government will pay £2.00.
  • Parents must be in work and earn £115.00 per week or more.
  • Income must not exceed £100,000 per annum

We will circulate more information as it becomes available.
