What are Childcare Vouchers?
In April 2005, The Government introduced a Childcare Voucher Scheme to help support working parents. The scheme means that companies can offer employees childcare vouchers as part of their salary Free of Tax and National Insurance
Childcare Vouchers are a simple, flexible and effective way for employers to help their employees with their childcare costs. Companies can give employees up to £2,916 per year tax-free in childcare vouchers saving your company 13.8% Employers National Insurance Contribution on this figure and saving parents up to £933 each in Tax and National Insurance.
Each Parent can save up to £933 per annum (or up to £625 per annum for higher rate taxpayers). Employers can save up to £402 per employee per year in NI contributions. The scheme also improves staff morale, employee retention and recruitment of new staff.
Voluntary Oftsed Registration:
Due to the nature of our childcare service Mother Nature Science are ‘exempt’ from registering with Ofsted. However, because our safety standards are in line with them, from working with schools for over ten years, we choose certain school venues where we have a long-established relationship to be ‘Voluntarily Ofsted Registered’ as ‘Childcare on non-domestic premises’ for holiday camps.
We are not required to register to run our holiday camps but we occasionally choose to for our long-term school partners.
Every Holiday camp school venue is required is to be registered separately. This also enables parents to pay using childcare vouchers at the registered venues – only.
The full Ofsted requirements (as ‘Childcare on non-domestic premises’) that we have to satisfy are located in the childcare registration handbook.
Why are we not required to register?
Mother Nature Science is a private limited company, offering science instructional based activities to help children gain an interest in science by coaching them on various science topics from Chemistry, Biology and Physics.
We provide no more than two types of activities from “school study support or homework support”, “sport”, “performing arts”, “arts and crafts”, and “religious, cultural or language study” (please see number 10 of the “Registration not required – a childcare factsheet” See Here, Ofsted document reference number 080134).
These points negate us from being compulsorily required to be Ofsted registered.
