Childcare Market Report 2015

  • Key Note Publications Ltd

This Key Note Market Report examines the childcare market in the UK, including private-sector provision, local authority/voluntary provision, individual care, and provision for school-age children. In recent years, the affordability and availability of childcare within the UK has begun to reach a crisis point, with childcare costs increasing rapidly by 27% since 2009 and the average family now estimated to spend around a third of their household budgets on childcare provision. As a result, the Government has introduced a raft of new policies to ease the burden of such costs on families and encourage more parents back into work, such as the creation of more childcare places, the extension of free weekly childcare and the extension of school hours from 8am to 6pm in order to improve the availability of out-of-hours wrap-around care for both nursery- and school-age children.
