Hello Dear Mommies,

I will be moving to London in mid-March. I have two children (a 3 yr old son and a 7 month old daughter - would be 9M by then). I am a bit confused on what kind of child care should I opt for. I am looking for help atleast for 3 days a week as I could work for 2 days from home.

I tried searching for an indicator on approx. costs, but am a bit lost. If I were to look for a nursery for 3 days a week (8-6), how much would it cost?
And does anyone know of any good nurseries in the Canary Wharf area?
I read in some sites that my son could be eligible for free 15 hours a week education (since he's 3 year old) - is that true? Then, for 3 days, I may be looking for 30 hours for my daughter and 15 for my son.

How much would a childminder cost? Or is nanny really the most cost effective option? But I would want my kids to be able to meet other kids and do some structured activities as well during the week.

Please please please help me clear my head.

A nanny is the most expensive form of chilcare in london. Every nursery or childminder has to be registered with the borough. I don't know about canary work specifically but you can contact the borough (tower hamlet i think) and they shold be able to send you a list of all childminders and nurseries in the area. Or check
