Childcare Vouchers in the UK Powered By Docstoc
					Childcare vouchers are given out to the families who qualify for them through the
human resources department in the state that you live in. You must pass a income
guideline in order to be eligible for the childcare vouchers. They were carefully
assessed to see if they qualify for the free childcare vouchers that enable them to find
someone through their program to babysit for their children for a specified amount of
time that is decided through the program and what the purpose of the babysitting is
for.

What the childcare sitter system does is allow for the parent to either find a sitter on
their own who will then provide them with the paperwork to be reimbursed by the
state. The base pay will be decided through the state and they will only pay the base
and whatever was decided above the base pay will have to be paid out of pocket for
you. You must discuss this matter with the person that you are looking to be the
babysitter as this will affect your decision on who will be the babysitter.

Make sure that the person that you are seeking to be the sitter for you is a qualified
babysitter who has credentials. Make sure that the person has references to backup
their claim. You will want to contact the references and don't be afraid to ask too
many questions. They are parents as well and will understand that you want to know
who will be caring for your child during the times that you can not be there. Make
sure that you contact each reference and ask if they had any problems with the sitter
and if they did ask them what it was.

There will be a paper form that you must turn in to the county or state offices that will
allow the payment to be sent to the sitter that has been chosen. This paper will
determine how much money the sitter will get. Make sure that you have fully
submitted filled out the paperwork so that nothing holds up the payment that is sent to
the sitter. If something is not filled out correctly it could hold up the payment by as
much as one month. The sitter will not be happy and could refuse service until she or
he is paid. In this case you would have to pay them out of your own pocket and then
wait for the county or state to reimburse you.
