Childminders in North London, any ideas how much they charge?

I am thinking about returning to work, ds is now one and I was really shocked about the high nursery costs. Going back three days a week might not be worse it financially as it hardly covers the costs, so I just wondered if anyone has an idea how much childminder charge?

In Barnet the childminders I looked at were a similar price to the nurseries - inevitably the one I absolutely loved was the most expensive (£60/day) with the average at about £50 and nurseries a bit less. Good luck, will be interested to know what others have found.

try looking on - click on your local area, and it will give you a list of childcare options, choose childminders and look at a few until you get the prices (some don't put them on their profiles)

If it's any help, in west london, childminders start at about £3.50 and get to £5 an hour...but tend to have a 'day' price between £30 and £40 - quite similar to nurseries.

I have a friend in Enfield whose childminder is £20 per day, but I don't know if that's average.

It depends where you are in North London I think. About £5 an hour is average in the N10 area.

my dd goes to a childminer in Finchley and she charges £4.50 ph which is about average I think.
