Childcare Vouchers

Many employers run childcare vouchers schemes which help working parents with the cost of childcare, including nursery care. Esklets Preschool welcomes childcare vouchers as payment for nursery fees. We accept vouchers from ‘Computershare’s but don’t worry if your employer is a member of a different scheme we can quickly and easily sign up to any officially-recognised childcare voucher scheme.
