As of the 5th October 2018 the childcare voucher scheme has closed for parents to join, however childcare providers can enrol to accept vouchers and employers looking to move their existing schemes can set up an account.

Employees who have temporarily opted out of Childcare Vouchers, for example due to maternity leave or a career break, can re-join the Childcare Voucher scheme and will remain eligible provided they:

  1. joined the scheme prior to 4 October 2018
  2. make at least one salary sacrifice (more than £0) within each 52 week period
  3. do not leave the scheme in order to use Tax-Free Childcare, and
  4. do not change employer

If you select your benefits through your employer's benefits site, you will only be able to re-join through that site.
