Transfer tax-free childcare account from one parent to another

Good afternoon,

I have a tax-free childcare account ( I am aware that you can only have one account per child (it's up to you to decide which parent/carer manages it).
I would like my partner to manage it instead of me: how do I transfer my account to him - not sure if there's a way to do this? The only thing I can think of is closing my account (not sure how) and have him open one in his name.

Thank you for your help :)
