MASKK was created to provide access to after school and holiday playcare for school aged children. We were created by local people to provide an affordable childcare option so that parents could work or attend training.
Therefore we work hard to fundraise and generate income from various sources so that we can keep our fees as low as possible. The previous fee increase was in April 2021.
The Government have a few options that provide financial support for parents (click the Childcare Choices Logo) including:
- Universal Credit (where you pay us each month and upload your receipt to be reimbursed up to 85%)*
- Tax-Free Childcare (where you pay into your childcare pot, the Government top it up with 20% then you transfer the amount you need to pay to us)**
We rely on fees to be paid regularly and have a variety of ways to do this. Payments can be made online via card when booking, via your online account, by card or cash in person, childcare vouchers, tax-free children, via PayPal or bank transfer.
If there is a debt that needs to be paid, you can arrange for monthly payments by:
- Creating a standing order to our MASKK account, sort code 40-41-57, account number 40043494
- or PayPal or Card subscription at £20 per month using the link to the left.
If you are really struggling with your fees please speak to us as early as possible. We want to be as flexible as possible and we want to help.
*Universal Credit will only reimburse childcare costs paid for during your claim period. You will need to upload your booking confirmation (attached to the email you received when making the booking) plus proof of your payment. Proof can include Zettle email receipt, bank statement showing a payment to MASKK, PayPal confirmation email of payment or your statement on the MagicBooking site.
**You need to remember to transfer the payment to MASKK and share your child’s unique Tax-Free Childcare number so that payment can be matached to your account. This can take up to 10 days.
