Childcare support from your employer

If you are working, ask your employer about childcare help they could offer.

There are some good reasons why more and more employers are looking at their employees' childcare needs and trying to find ways to help. Employers rely upon parents as part of their workforce, and they need you to be able to concentrate on your work without worrying about your children while you are there. Parents with safe, secure, high quality childcare arrangements that they can afford are:

  • Less likely to be worrying about their children while they work
  • More likely to come back to work after maternity leave
  • More likely to stay in work as their children grow up

What kind of childcare help could be offered?

  • Childcare vouchers
  • Childcare subsidies
