Working parents could be entitled to Tax-Free Childcare worth up to £2,000 per child per year to pay towards regulated holiday clubs during the school holidays.
Parents can choose from more than 68,000 childcare providers that have signed up, including school and summer camps across the country.
If parents pay into their Tax-Free Childcare account regularly, they can "save up" their money and use it for childcare during school holidays. For every £8 that families pay in, the government will make a top-up payment of an additional £2. The money saved can be put towards a whole range of other childcare options, including before and after school care when term time starts again in September.
The scheme is open to working parents, including the self-employed, who earn between the minimum wage and £100,000 per year and have children aged up to 11 years old.
You can find out more and apply through the Childcare Choices website. It includes a Childcare Calculator that compares all the government’s childcare offers to check what works best for individual families.
