Under this scheme, an employee of the University of Cambridge elects (by signing a contract) to receive a lower salary in return for childcare provided by the University Nurseries at Edwinstowe Close or at West Cambridge. The pre-tax salary deduction is equal to the post tax nursery payment made by those not taking a salary sacrifice. For employees with children in other nurseries etc. salary may be sacrificed in return for childcare vouchers which are provided free of tax and national insurance.
Further details are available from the Childcare Office web pages.
