Choosing childcare is an important decision for every family. The childcare voucher scheme is closed to new entrants and has been replaced by tax-free childcare which could support with costs whether you have toddlers or teens. Information about tax-free childcare, the potential for 30 hours of free childcare and other government childcare schemes is on the government’s Childcare Choices webpages.

Discounted childcare fees

We are pleased to be partnering with Busy Bees Nurseries – the UK’s leading childcare and nursery provider, to offer staff access to discounted childcare fees. The benefits include:

  • 20% off their childcare fees
  • no enrolment fees
  • access to one week of free childcare after three months

Nursery facilities

Staff can apply for places in the nurseries run by our NHS partners: St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts. We have also identified a nursery provider close to our Waterloo Campus for your consideration.

Additionally, you may be able to benefit from discounted kids’ clubs places, with money off in addition to any support provided by the government.
