Childcare vouchers

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by dc88, Apr 3, 2011.

  1. You're not providing childcare, you're a private tutor! Just inform her than unfortunately private tuition doesn't qualify for the childcare voucher scheme.

    Yes, that's what I thought, but she said that the website suggested that parents could use the vouchers for extra-curricular stuff such as piano and horse riding lessons! I can't find any mention of this, so I shall have to ask her to point it out to me.
    Ta for help.
     
  3. I don´t think she can do that, as somebody else pointed out, they are for childcare.

    If an ofsted registered childcare provider (such as an independent school with a nursery or boarding facilities) offers clubs outside school hours (which I'm pretty sure can include learning support lessons i.e. tuition) parents can pay by childcare vouchers if the school will allow it.

    An individual can't accept them (unless they were also an ofted registed childminder I suppose?)

    They are supposed to be for childcare. I daresay you could register for this...but do you want to?

    You are a tutor. Not a childminder. The parent should be in the house with you.
