Who controls the price charged by nurseries?

My 2yr old goes to a Montessori in NW London. Its £900 each month for 12 months, although it shuts 4 weeks a year I still have to pay. This seems so high, is there any organisation that governs the price they charge? Also, after the child turns 2 shouldn't there be a reduction in price as they don't require as many staff? I know I could move him somewhere less expensive but I am very happy with the nursery and staff are great. I just don't know how to bring this subject up. Any suggestions?

montessori is essentially private schooling for babies - hence the price
it costs an awful lot of oney to train as a montessori teacher also.
tjhats why it costs so much more.

Market forces control the price. they charge whatever they feel they can get
