Childcare Choices - new government website supports parents to find right childcare for them
Government launches new childcare website Childcare Choices. Childcare Choices brings together all the government childcare offers for the first time, helping parents find the right childcare support to suit them. As part of Childcare Choices they are introducing two new offers in 2017 – Tax-Free Childcare, which will be introduced on 28 April and gradually rolled out, and 30 hours free childcare, available from September 2017 for 3 and 4 year olds. From the end of April, parents will begin to apply for both schemes at the same time through a new digital childcare service. The new Childcare Choices website provides information on the new and existing Government childcare offers: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.
Parents will also be able to see who has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare scheme via a search facility on Gov.uk website: https://www.childcare-providerchecker.tax.service.gov.uk/
North Somerset Family Information Service will display both offers via its website www.nsomerset.gov.uk/fis
