We have just had a letter from nursery saying that in the face of the 0.5% interest rates, and my 1% pay rise, they are putting their fees up 5% this year and we should think ourselves bloody lucky as that's less than the 'national average' increase angry

So I thought I'd do a little MN average poll. How much has your nursery fee gone up %wise???

From 30 to 31 quid a day.

Not a big percentage can't do maths

Dd is at nursery school rather than day nursery, and due to the credit crunch they will not be raising the fees for next year.

OP, you're not thewiltedrose are you?

If not, you may want to change your name - there was a poster called thewiltedrose who pissed everyone off with her begging.

Wiltedrose Thu 05-Mar-09 19:55:44

Not because I really am that person and am pretending not to be, I should add, just because I had a MN break of 18 months and being pregnant a 2nd time fancied starting again grin

Ours have gone up by £2 a day or just under 6% - but I don't think they went up last year at all - dd wasn't there then as I was on maternity leave so I'm not 100%. It's always a painful moment - but I love the nursery and respect the staff - with the increased cost of food and heat etc it seems reasonable enough. I hope some will be passed on as a salary rise to the staff as well though!

Well it was supposed to be floppy - then I mistyped and thought it was sort of quaint.

Speaking of which - 'quiltedrose' is a bit like a duvet cover beloved by Thora Hird imo! grin

wiltedrose sounds like good gossip to me. I'm new to MN, tell me more!

How about droopingdaff?

In view of the economic climate, they've delayed the usual January increase until April I think.

AlwaysHopefull Thu 05-Mar-09 20:10:21

PS my nursery fees went up about 5% too, but that was last September before things went really bad for everyone. Not expecting any more rises until this September.
