Childcare Costs Survey 2015

Since 2002 the Family and Childcare Trust has undertaken an annual childcare survey -- measuring the prices of childcare for parents and the availability of childcare places. The data -- collected from local authority Family Information Services -- make it possible to monitor changes in childcare prices and its supply from year-to-year. Over the last five years, while there have been deep cuts to other public services, the Coalition Government has increased spending on childcare. But despite this welcome investment, this year's survey, the 14th in the series, finds childcare prices have continued to increase and the gaps in provision remain unfilled. (author abstract)
