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. 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.
