So, what's the
problem?

UK early years childcare is amongst the most expensive in all OECD countries with parents spending, on average, 55% of their total income on childcare.

Employers don’t have scalable solutions and are feeling the strain of stressed employees, increased absences and a decline in motivation. In the UK, businesses have a distinct lack of representation when it comes to female staff in senior and executive roles due to these women having to ‘bow out’ to take care of their kids. It’s about time we changed this.

“Over a third (35.5%) of mothers who return to work, only just break even or make a financial loss due to the cost of childcare.”

How can YellowNest help?

With our unique ‘salary sacrifice’ model, all parties stand to benefit. By sacrificing a portion of salary pre-tax, we’ve found a tax-efficient way to process up to 100% of childcare payments. Our payment platform is easy to use and allows parents, employers and nurseries access to their monthly savings.

Our expert team of HR professionals manage all the set-up and allow you to launch this workplace benefit with ease. We handle your payroll, contact all necessary parties and make your savings accessible to view from your online portal. For all of this, we charge a simple monthly subscription fee to employers, per parent signed up to the programme.
