My child attends a nursery in a fairly rural location run by the school.
Just wondering what you hourly rate was per hour so I can get an idea while I try and arrange childcare this year.
Also are these rates affected by your 30 funded hours?
Our nursery (also in a rural area) charges £5.50 per hour (meals/snacks are extra). It's not affected by the 30 hour funding in the sense that there is no top up charges, but paying hourly is more expensive than paying by full day session, if that makes sense. So paying by full day session in the course of the month is cheaper than paying hourly for 40 hours a week (our daughter was full time 9-5), but ultimately it's cheaper to pay hourly and use the 30 funded hours, even when we pay a bit more for the extra 10 hours a week (as these are paid as 10 hours, not 1 day session plus 2 hours). But that was case even when it was just 15 hours, but anyway, any hours is better than none and makes our bill considerably less.
I should add the above is at a private day nursery, not one affiliated with a school. We don't have any of those around here as it's that rural.
