Pre-school/Nursery costs


Hello,

Am thinking of sending my two yearold to preschool but have no idea the rough cost.

It'll only be 1 half or full day a week.

Just need to see if it's going to be viable.
I realise different places charge different amounts but just looking for an estimate really.

Can anyone help?

It can depend on the area of the prices. Where i live i pay 10 session which is 12.30-3.30 but i have to get a bus to take her cus the pre school/nurserys buy me was more. My daughter goes 2 afternoons a week cus i was told 1 afternoon isnt really worth it.

Tom goes to a private nursery. We pay 37 a day or it's 25 for a half day - that's 8am - 6pm.

Our pre school is attached to the school and is doesn't cost as its funded places only.

Lana is in private nursery that is 612 or 765 a month depending on weeks in the month that is for full time.

We pay 610 a month for Monday to Thursday 8am to 6pm including breakfast, lunch and snack. He is very rarely there for the full day but you either pay for 8 till 1 or 1 till 6 here and as I don't finish work till half past 2 in the afternoon I have to pay for full days . When I was looking for a nursery for Zack I just called round a few to double check pricing and available places and they were all very helpful

Thank you.

It's very expensive! Luckily(!) I work evenings and my oh works daytime so we sort childcare between us. Can't imagine how we'd afford full time childcare! It wouldn't be worth me working full time.

I just though pre school might help him and he'd like it there. Going to as around a few places and organize a visit :-)

We pay 35 per day for a full day at a private day nursery

My friend who is a sahm is getting her 2 yr old in for a morning a week at a nursery school - so 3 hr morning followed by a lunch provided by parents and this is ALoT cheaper, about 10 I think.

It depends which type of place you pick.

We pay 41 for a full day in a private nursery including food costs, I think it is 28 for half a day. Pre-school will be cheaper but I think children generally have to be 2.5 (and if you rely on it as childcare you will have issues with school holidays etc)

p.s. I think it is a great idea and I'd do the same
