  1. Your salary must be greater than the cost of your nursery fees/proposed salary exchange. Furthermore, the exchanged amount must not reduce your salary to below the National Minimum Wage.  Be aware that all Salary Exchange Schemes you are part of will be taken into account including pension, cycle scheme etc.
  2. It is University policy that membership in the exchange scheme may only commence from the second month of nursery occupancy. Fees for the first month must be settled directly with the Nursery by cheque or Direct Debit.
  3. You must be able to commit to a minimum of one year's membership in the Workplace Nurseries' Salary Exchange Scheme; see 'How Long do I have to stay in the Workplace Nurseries' Salary Exchange Scheme?'
  4. You cannot use the government's Tax-Free Childcare scheme if you are using the University's Workplace Nurseries' Salary Exchange scheme, so you need to consider which scheme would bring you the greatest benefit. For further information, please call the government's Childcare Services Helpline on 0300 123 4097.
