Help paying for childcare
Last updated: 10 November 2020

Childcare you can get help with

You can get help from the government to pay for any type of 'registered' childcare.

This means childcare provided by individuals and organisations registered with the Care Inspectorate.

These include:

  • nurseries
  • playgroups
  • childminders
  • out of school care providers
