Hi all I wonder if you can help. Trying to begin to think about nursery care. dS will be 12 month on starting nursery full time, any ideas on how much this might cost? Based in Berks area

Very much depends on the nurseries local to you.

I am in East London. A full time place for a baby (ie under 2 as the ratios are higher) is between £1000 - £1250 a month depending on the nursery.

Might be a bit cheaper in Berks but probably not much.

I am in greater London suburbs. Full time is approx. £1500 per month.

I'm in the Home Counties. They range here from £900-£1500 depending where you choose or if you use childcare vouchers or not. Ds attends a lovely little nursery, it's really not much to look at and feels quite cramped, but the quality of care, facilities and activities is second to none. It's £900 per month with vouchers. There is one up the road, bigger and 'flashier' that charges £1500 per month for a shorter day, and although looks the biz, is no better than our nursery in terms of care and education.

North here, around 1000-1200k per month.

I pay £57 per day in Manchester but it is a very good nursery. Full time places are £1100/month

MissSmiley Mon 28-Apr-14 20:43:22

£30 per day in East Midlands. Works out at about 600 per month full time including discount for 5th day.

Ten years ago in London was £90 per day.

sleepdodger Mon 28-Apr-14 21:31:33

Leics £45 day// ft discount though so £875 month for private outstanding nursery

sleepdodger Mon 28-Apr-14 21:32:23

Miss smiley where are you for that price! I'm 50% more for same area envy

MiniatureRailway Mon 28-Apr-14 21:33:22

Around £870 per month here.

Berkshire is around £1200 a month full time

anon2113 Wed 30-Apr-14 16:15:09

I got a quote for £213 per week for full time (7.30-6.00) from a nursery in Oxfordshire. I imagine the prices are pretty similar in Berks.

SlinkyB Wed 30-Apr-14 16:19:53

Wiltshire here. My ds's very nice private nursery is circa £1100 pcm full time for a 12 month old (08.00-18.00hrs Mon-Fri).

Wales here, commuting distance to Cardiff, £1100 per month for a full time place which includes 8-6 so you effectively get the hour each end "wraparound" care.

Supermum222 Sun 04-May-14 19:15:47

Gosh, some of these prices are high. I paid £35 a day for nursery/£26 a day for childminder a few years back. North England.

YoniMitchell Sun 04-May-14 19:18:37

SW London and £1,500 per month, full time here. I'd imagine Berks would be similar or slightly cheaper, depending on the area.

PrincessOfChina Sun 04-May-14 19:20:24

£870 here (West Mids) at a good nursery attached to the University.

stargirl1701 Sun 04-May-14 19:22:00

CM, rural Scotland, £30 per day.

nannynick Sun 04-May-14 19:23:43

In my area (Surrey/Berks border) it can be around £50 per day for an under 3.
Childminders are around £5 per hour, so could be a similar cost for full days.

It will vary, so probably best to contact some providers in your area.
A list of nurseries and childminders is available from your Family Information Service (often run by local or county council).

EmpireBiscuit Sun 04-May-14 19:24:09

£1050 7.45-6 in Glasgow commuter town.

VodkaKnockers Sun 04-May-14 19:46:33

£600 p/m in Glasgow but this is a community nursery that get partial council funding

FullySwindonian Tue 06-May-14 20:07:59

Bearing in mind you'll get 15 hours a week free nursery from age 3-4 and in some cases frm 24 months.

Free early education

Ruby1080 Sun 18-May-14 15:52:22

My children's nursery is £40 per day, or £170 for a full week, so £737 per month (North West).

Tallandgracefulmum Sun 29-Jun-14 08:42:13

I pay �1498 for one child and �748 for the second. I am in London. Full time places.

Hanginggardenofboobylon Sun 29-Jun-14 08:47:59

It can vary enormously, here in Essex it is between £40 and £55 per day for 8-6
Different nurseries charge in different ways e.g extra for meals, extra for hours past 5pm etc. you really need to look at what is available locally that suits your requirements
