How much do you pay? I'm looking into 2 days and I can't believe how expensive it is.

£52 a day. Lunch only meal included, provide own nappies. 4 days a week 😭 Edinburgh.

MeInHoney86 Tue 26-Jul-16 21:42:21

4.40 an hour plus £1.50 for meals but not inc nappies and wipes. Cheapest round here is £39 a day (up to 11h including everything) but it wasn't a patch on this nursery. I only have 1day a week so ignored the extra few quid for one I was happy with. Full time prices are a killer.

SellFridges Tue 26-Jul-16 21:45:12

£230 ish a week. Day rate would be £55 I think.

We provide nappies, wipes etc but all food is included. Fairly typical for here.

Insertwitticismhere Tue 26-Jul-16 21:48:55

£68 a day incl food, nappies, sun cream etc. I try not to think about it else I'd cry!

TeaBelle Tue 26-Jul-16 21:49:07

£55 a day for 2 year olds - breakfast, snack and light tea included. We supply nappies and wipes and either a packed lunch or pay for a hot meal. Don't forget that you can use childcare vouchers which can reduce how much tax you pay

£43 per day for 18 month old, includes snacks but lunch is extra. £36 per day for 4 year old, snacks and lunch included. 5 days per week sad

£52 a day for a 3 year old, £210 a week with free hours for 45 hours a week.

Finally reached the top of the waiting list for a local children's centre so will be paying £150 a week for 45 hours come September. Yippee!!!!

Monthly we pay £497 for my two year old for two days (although the nursery have just increased their monthly fees to £518)and it'll drop to £247 or thereabouts when her 15 hours comes in January.

blamethecat Tue 26-Jul-16 22:07:01

£48.50 per day 8.00-18.00 includes 3 meals & 2 snacks. We provide Nappies/wipes/Suncream. Midlands. (Worth every penny though)

throwingpebbles Tue 26-Jul-16 22:11:03

£40 a day; south east England.
Includes lovely healthy meals and snacks, all nappies and suncream etc and really amazing garden and facilities and far more staff than "minimum" requirements.

chikdcare vouchers ease the pain a little, and in 6 months DD will get her free hours and then it will feel a lot more bearable
