Since 2002 the Family and Childcare Trust has undertaken an annual survey, measuring the price and availability of childcare.The publication of this year’s survey, the 15th in the series shows that price rises have slowed compared with last year and are now increasing in line with inflation, although childcare remains a substantial item of family expenditure.
