Support with fees

Here are The Treehouse, we understand that childcare can be a really important part of your family dynamic but can sometimes be a large chunk of the family budget. 


There are options depending on your circumstances, that can assist with this;


If you are at work and not in receipt of any benefit other than Child Benefit, you can apply for Tax Free Childcare. Is it very easy to apply for and simply put, "You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year)."(source: HMRC website)

If you are in receipt of Universal Credit, did you know you can claim up to 85% of your childcare payments back? This can be up to “£646 per month or £1108 for two children” (Source, HMRC website) All you need to do is go to your 'Dashboard' and follow the directions. If you need to provide any information, please contact the office and we can help you. Here is some helpful information: Universal Credit
