If you’re a parent registered for Tax-Free Childcare, you can sign in to:

  • pay into your account and pay your childcare provider
  • reconfirm your eligibility - you do this every 3 months
  • apply for a new child
  • update your contact details

If you’re eligible for 30 hours free childcare, you can also sign in and view a code to give to your provider.

Sign in

Before you start

You’ll need the Government Gateway user ID and password you used to apply for Tax-Free Childcare or 30 hours free childcare.

You sign in to your account a different way if you’re a childcare provider.

If you’ve been unable to use the service

You may be able to claim compensation if you’ve had technical problems with your childcare account.
