Childcare and kindergarden in UK

Dec 12th, 2016, 17:55 PM   #1
Hello, everybody!
I am pregnant and in the future I would like to give the baby to childcare and after that at kindergarten. But I have few questions if anybody could help:

From how many months can I give the baby to nursery day? At 1 year and 5 months it is ok? I would like to come back at work then. And what about the fees? I have searched on google and I have found between 200-300 pounds per week full time. What about the timings, it is from 8 am to 4 pm? If there is someone that can answer me, I will be grateful.

Thank you!

Hey each nursery is different but private nurseries can be 6am until 6pm or there are childminders who work different hours.
My local childminders charge 35 a day, and the nursery is similar.
You can send babies from as early as 6 month a year would be fine x

Our nursery take babies from 3 months. It costs 55 per day (all inclusive) for under 3s and they are open 8-6.30. Most nurseries have basic information on their websites so look up some of your local ones to get an idea.
