- Financial Support
We are registered as a Childcare provider on the Ofsted Voluntary Childcare Register in England, this means that many families are able to receive financial support with their tuition costs.
Root Tuition is Ofsted registered and is on the voluntary childcare register. You will be able to save money on the tuition fees by paying with childcare vouchers. Childcare vouchers are offered by your employer to help with childcare costs. Childcare voucher are tax and National Insurance exempt.
