    tirty bob tats for sure...any more an yees be done a tell ya..

    My little one was at a private nursery up until about a year ago, paid around £135 for 4 days each week (subsidised by working tax credits). This was the only one in the area where the price included all nappies and food. They were given breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, and 'high tea' a small meal of like spaghetti on toast, soup or sandwiches etc about 15:30.

    I did have to supply suncream and sudocrem if necessary (I think this is to avoid any recourse over skin reactions).

    They did not go on any trips, because of the age of the kids the insurance and man power going into them would have been ridiculous (so I was told). They did occassionally have visitors like fire brigade etc and go into the neighbouring primary school to watch puppet shows, and do music classes etc. It was a private day nursery inside a surestart centre attached (literally) to a primary school.

    neice pays300 pw all day

    mines 29.50 per day.they do breakfast,dinner and tea and i have to provide the nappies,wipes and suncream.

    Crazy prices. I wouldn't use a nursery myself i dont work but if i did i would feel bad letting someone else have my kid all day. shes in pre school now and it's £2 a week for snack and 50p of that goes towards entertainment magicians puppet show etc.

    Obviously people who can work and also have kids are forced to use childcare nurseries . I'm not slagging anyone off.

    +1... totally agree.

    thank god the mother-in-law helps us out (for free)
    i dont earn enough to cover the full weeks cost of nursery,so i could say im lucky really.

    £550 per month, all in, all day.

    breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack, I supply nappies although pull-up pants now, (toilet training) and a full team of nurses and doctors on standby.

    Used to pay £120 a week full time. Had to provide our own nappies but that was it.

    We have a nanny at £2k per month (including tax) one of my sons is at school half time and that is £1500 per term.

    The thing is some people who work would be better off if they stayed at … The thing is some people who work would be better off if they stayed at home with the kids as the childcare costs are probably more than their wage, and the kids get a better up bringing then (in most cases).



    I agree with what you've said above. But, from what I've read on here in the past, you would then get slated for being a scrounger and be told you shouldn't have children if you can't afford them.

    We don't have any childcare costs. I am a stay at home mum. Husband has a good job. We don't have any family around to help with childcare, babysitting etc, so it's all down to us.

    So it should be

    Have to pay £30 a day for my daughter although some of that is covered by government funding for pre-school now. This includes all meals, suncream and nappies.

    i refuse to let my kids be looked after by someone else all day when it was my choice to want to become a mum.
    my youngest is in nursery now so i will be starting a course in sept and then hopefully uni the year after when he's at school.
    i have no family close by so i look after my boys 24/6, they stay at their dads for one day a week
