Childare Vouchers are now CLOSED to new entrants
The Government has closed the Childcare Voucher scheme to new entrants from 4 October 2018.
Current users can continue to receive Childcare Vouchers to pay for registered childcare costs as long as they remain eligible – provided they do not change employer.
New entrants are:
- parents with first babies born after 4 October;
- anyone not registered before this date; and
- current users who change employer after 4 October.
Childcare providers can continue to accept Childcare Vouchers as a form of payment from those parents who are already registered for and using the Scheme.
