Methods of Payment

Childcare vouchers
Springwood accepts most childcare vouchers towards the payment of the monthly fees.
The Childcare Voucher Scheme is a UK government initiative aimed at helping working parents to benefit from tax efficiencies in order to save money on childcare.  The scheme allows you to pay for childcare from your PRE-TAX salary. The scheme closed for new applicants on 4 Oct 2018, but if you were signed up before then, you can still use them.  If you’re with the same employer, and it still offers them, you can continue to get childcare vouchers

Tax Free Childcare
Springwood accepts Tax Free Childcare toward the monthly fees.
Tax-free childcare gives eligible families up to £2,000 free per child towards childcare costs. It was designed to replace the childcare vouchers scheme and launched in April 2017.  Further information regarding eligibility can be found here.
