Childcare now costs more than top public school
"The spiralling cost of childcare in Britain is exposed today by figures which show it can now cost more to send a toddler to nursery than to one of the country's most prestigious private schools.
"Soaring nursery fees mean that some parents are paying up to £22,100 a year in childcare costs per child - a rise of more than 40 per cent in seven years. This is more than the fees of private day schools such as Westminster School in London, regularly ranked the top school in the country, where fees are currently £19,626 a year.
"Campaigners last night called on the Government to take urgent action, arguing that the enormous cost of childcare was putting families under intolerable financial pressure and driving parents out of the workforce as they could no longer afford to work."
