I have first baby due in December and am going to be returning back to work at the beginning of July, but am already thinking about costs as I am returning to work part time.
Can anyone give me a rough estimate of costs for a day at a nursery and a childminder? I'm based outside of London so will be avoiding those high prices thankfully!
Thanks in advance

My nursery is in the northwest and it's £39.95 for a baby place 8-6
£3.50 to start at 7.30
Discount of 10% for a full time place

I used to childmind and charged £4.50 per hour which included all meals and snacks (unless there was a serious allergy and then the parents would provide) and all the local activities we would go to. I'm in Suffolk so prices are v different to London.

Thank you! Good to know that I wasn't too far out with my very brief fact finding/estimating!

You might get a better idea is you actually say the region you are in.
Not all London is as expensive as others Im in a London Borough and some charge £4/hour

The closest nursery to me is £44 a day for under 2s. Childminders vary wildly, I know one charging £30 a day and another £50. I live in Manchester.

Hi everyone
Wondering if somebody could help .
I've got a 1 year old who will be two this October and a 4 year old who is 5 in November and starts school next week .
My partner is currently in prison so I'm classed as a single parent . I'm currently unemployed but I do have a teaching degree . I would like to look for teaching assistant jobs as I don't feel confident enough at the moment to go into teaching as a class teacher just yet . Anyway teaching assistant wage isn't much it's about 16.000-18,000 a year at best . I really want to get into it but I am worried about not being able to afford child care ? And also if my benefits all will get taken I'll end up in debt ? How does it all work I've done the calculator thing online but it confused me . Would I qualify for help
With childcare for my almost 2 year old and before /after club for my 5 year old ? It all is worrying me . Also my housing benefit I can't afford this flat if they took that away and wouldn't b able To afford it on th age I would get as a teaching assistant
