Our ninth survey explores the issues of cost and availability of childcare in Britain, sponsored by Imagine Co-operative Childcare.
This year’s survey has found that nursery costs have continued to rise significantly throughout Great Britain. Childminder costs have also increased across Britain in the past 12 months. Reversing the trend from the previous year, out-of-school club costs swelled in England whilst decreasing in Scotland and Wales. Although Family Information Services reported greater childcare sufficiency than in previous years, almost 60 per cent of those surveyed stated that parents had reported a lack of childcare provision. Typically, FIS reported a particular lack of childcare for children aged 12 and over, disabled children and children with special educational needs.
