Every year Family and Childcare Trust gathers information about childcare costs and availability in Britain. The data – collected from local authority Family Information Services – makes it possible to monitor changes in childcare costs and availability from year to year. It also identifies differences in childcare provision across the regions and nations of Britain. This year’s survey, the 12th in the series, has found above inflation rises in costs in England at a time when wages are stagnant.
