Family and Childcare Trust Childcare Survey 2017

The Family and Childcare Trust published its sixteenth annual Childcare Survey in February 2017. The survey reveals that – although nursery prices hold steady and childminder prices have risen just above inflation at 1.9 per cent – families spend up to 45 per cent of their disposable income on childcare.

The report notes:

‘Parents are effectively shut out of the workplace by crippling childcare costs. While recent Governments have rightfully invested in childcare, we call for a robust childcare strategy to make sure that every parent is better off working after they have paid for childcare.’
