Child Care Vouchers

We would advise parents to check out the Childcare Voucher Scheme and we are very happy to receive payment from the various suppliers. However, we must insist that for electronic payments either the child’s name or the family name is included in the voucher provider’s remittance so that it appears on our bank statement. For cheque payments they must be submitted complete with a remittance slip at the same time. Our preferred Child Care Voucher suppliers, as they meet our needs are, in alphabetic order:

Busy Bees Benefits - Care-4   -   Edenred  -  Kiddivouchers Ltd - Sodexo

We are quite happy to include others on the list providing that they ensure that our requirements are met.
