Hi I am a single mum that works 5 days a week in London, I live in cobham Surrey and cost of loving is high so I'm looking how to reduce costs. I'm paying around £1500 for childminder currently but she has him from 7.30 to 5.45 so long hours. I'm wondering how this would compare with other options. He is only 2 .5 years old and I am not have the one. I was thinking I would prefer an English speaker though , maybe Australian or amercican Or someone already recommended and working in the UK perhaps looking for a new position.
