Nursery Prices


I've started looking into childcare recently and had the shock of my life.. is £60+ for a 1 year old in a standard nursery really normal???? Speehless May as well stay at home to be honest!

We don't need childcare as we look after our kids ourselves but i do know how expensive it is. I looked into nursery places a few years ago & i was like Speehless
£200 + a week, which was roughly my husbands wage at the time.
I wouldn't expect to find cheap childcare in London.
If you do have a little one in nursery, would you be entitled to any money back from the government.... can't think what its called now Slightly Confused

I think there are childcare vouchers, but as we're self-employed we're not entitled to them apparently Crying

Thats a shame you aren't entitled to the vouchers Sad

I know nursery teachers or whatever their title is, need to be paid but i just think its so expensive.
How anyone manages childcare costs amazes me.
You have to be earning loads just to put them through nursery.

My mother in law is a nursery assistant/teacher (not sure job title!) and I know that she gets paid the bare minimum...must be the owners who are cashing in on the hugely ridiculous fees Very Angry

thats such a rip off to raise children in child care.

u'd hope mayb oneday the govt would pull their fingers outta their ___________ and do something about it.

i don't have any children myself but i can tell u i am not looking forward to paying for childcare at the rates they are at everywhere!!!!
