The Government announced a six-month extension to the Childcare Voucher (CCV) scheme following a Parliamentary Debate and Vote to keep Childcare Vouchers open to new entrants beyond April 2018.

The deadline for new entrants to join the existing CCV scheme has been extended to October 2018. This allows working parents who have not yet joined their company scheme another six months to consider their best options for support with childcare costs: a CCV scheme or the Tax Free Childcare Scheme.
