Have read around and can't work out if I can go to paying for our childcare via tax free childcare account while my husband uses vouchers... Does anyone have similar experience or know, I would be really grateful for advice smileconfused

No. It is one scheme or the other.

Generally if you have one child you are better off staying with vouchers.
If you have two or more children and have high childcare costs, then Tax-Free Childcare can be better. However you should try using the calculator to find out: www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator
