How to accept Edenred Childcare Vouchers
Any registered (Ofsted, Care Commission, CSSIW etc) childcare provider is eligible to accept Edenred Childcare Vouchers. To accept our vouchers, you first of all need to apply to affiliate with us. If you have previously been paid by any parent using Edenred vouchers, then you are already affiliated and don’t need to apply again.
If you have not previously accepted our Childcare Vouchers and wish to start, please click here. You will then be prompted to complete a simple online form, providing your contact, registration, and payment details. At the end of the process you will be asked to provide us with a copy of your registration certificate.
After you have completed your application and provided us with a copy of your certificate, we will send you confirmation of your Edenred account number, which will begin with the letter ‘P’.
How you get paid
Electronic Childcare Vouchers
The vast majority of Childcare Vouchers are now provided electronically, which means that you will not be handed a physical voucher by parents, but will instead be paid automatically each time a parent makes a transfer to you.
To allow parents to pay you using electronic Childcare Vouchers, you should provide them with your Edenred account number, which begins with the letter ‘P’. Your Edenred account number will appear on all communication you receive from us, including your welcome letter and any payment notifications.
Each time a parent makes a transfer to you, we will issue payment using the details you provided when you affiliated. Payment will be made directly into your bank account, and your account will be credited within 3-4 working days of the parent making a transfer.
Paper Childcare Vouchers
Paper childcare vouchers can be redeemed online via the account that is set up for you when you affiliate. Login details for this account will be included on your welcome letter. Vouchers can also be submitted for redemption by post.
Each time you submit vouchers for redemption, we will issue payment using the details you provided when you affiliated. If you have opted to be paid directly into your bank account, payment will credit your account 3-4 working days after you submit vouchers for redemption.
