Can anyone give me an idea about how much i should be paying for wraparound care for my 4 year old please?

well you need to define what you call wraparound care or rather, what you would require from wraparound care (before/afterschool, accepts your kid in school holidays and inset days and unexpected school shut days) group care (ASC) smaller setting (Childminder) and of course, the area as well. I am imagining for eg that care costs in Bristol, London, Cumbria would vary rather.

Rural west yorks - breakfast club and walk to school (DS's old nursery) = £4
After school club, at school = £8 (3.15 pm to 6 pm)
Holiday club - school or nursery =£20, but not available every day.

Thanks for that - info would help! It would be from 7.30 - school drop off and then after school 3 - 5. The school does not provide wrap around care...

SE London

Childminder £5/hr before and after school, for a whole day I pay £4/hr additional

Holiday clubs vary between £25 and £35/day

We have an after school club and I think it it £15 until 6pm, not sure what they breakfast costs are.

My dd started at her breakfast/after school club age 4. The school doesn't offer one. But this private one picks up kids from the local school then take them to the church hall where their club is held.

For breakfast club - 7.30-9am, it costs £7.

For after school - 3-6pm, it costs £13

So for a full day wrap around, it'd be £20.

This is regardless of what time you drop off/collect children. You're charged for the full session even if you come and pick your child up at say 3.30pm.

Then the club is open from 7.30-6pm during school holidays and in service days. This costs £25 for a full day. If you don't need your child to attend, and it's one of the days they're booked in to normally attend, you're charged a retainer of £5.

West of Scotland here.

The going rate where we used to live (southeast) for childminders was about £10 a day for before & after school plus £1 per meal (i.e. breakfast and/or tea).

Breakfast club at school was from 8am and cost £2. There was no after school care as such.

New school is £2.70 per hour before and after school (8am - 6pm)

Prices will vary wildly depending on where you live. A childminder in central (ish) London for example will charge around £8 an hour.

Breakfast club £3 starts at 8.
After school club £4 an hour plus £3 pick up/drop off from her school (Club 10 miles away...)

Where I am (Bristol) the primary school breakfast club is about £4 for 7.30am-8.45am and £8 for 3.15pm-5.45pm.

Childminders are about £4-£5 an hour

A nanny would probably be in the region of £10 an hour

In Devon I pay £3.50 per hour or pro rata per 15/30/45 minutes for childminder. She is right next to the school. Breakfast club is £2.50, as is after school club but only available to 5.00 so we can't use it sadly.

Our school has just started a "before school" club (no breakfast supplied). You can book in advance or just turn up on the day. Cost is 60p/day from 8am to school start at 8.55am or 50p/day from 8.20am. I don't need/use it at the moment but think it's a fantastic low cost option. It's a small school (70 pupils) so they are just paying one higher level TA to run it, since other staff are around to support in an emergency in any case. I do wonder if it's an option many small schools could provide if they only had the motivation.
