Ministers have announced the Government's Childcare scheme will be delayed by six months. The scheme was supposed to close to new entrants on 5 April this year.

In a debate in the House of Commons on 14th March, Education Secretary Damian Hinds made the concession to extend the scheme by six months.

The exact date on which the Childcare Vouchers scheme will now close to new applicants has not been announced yet, but it's expected it will be around October.
