Bosses trained in childcare help


Employers are being offered training to help working parents cope with childcare costs. A special breakfast seminar has been arranged by Cambridgeshire's care and education partnership to offer free information and support.

A spokesman said: "Employers can help by offering childcare voucher schemes, buying into a childminder network or contracting with local providers.

"The scheme can be offered as part of a salary or flexible benefits package."

The government recognises the importance of access to quality childcare.

In a bid to help make childcare more affordable for working parents, new legislation was introduced on 6 April 2005 offering capped relief on tax and national insurance contributions for the employer and the employee.

A breakfast seminar on the subject will be held at the Oliver Cromwell Hotel in March on Tuesday 24 May from 8.30am to 11.30am.
