Hi there, sorry for the late reply. Do you mean in a nursery or with a childminder? It also depends on how you anticipate splitting it and the age of the child.

I have knowledge of a couple of nurseries in Bolton - this is going back a few years now - and it was about £40-45 a day at nursery. None that I know of did hourly rates, but I think they did half days. Certainly one of the nurseries I used reduced the cost as the child got older (as staff to child ratios are lower). Childminders were slightly cheaper (say £35-40 a day).

Manchester (certainly south Manchester where Number 3 went to nursery) is more expensive - going back 3 years and we were paying £62 a day for 3 days. No half days or hourly rates. Childminders slightly cheaper again, average of around £5-6 per hour.

Feel free to PM me if you want any other info.

Depends in what combination. Eg DD's nursery charges £5 per hour, but the hourly rate is less for a whole session iyswim. I would think there's considerable local variation too, because Greater Manchester contains pockets of real affluence and also some very poor areas.
