The Cost of Elite Nurseries is Higher than the Annual Salary of Half


The UK’s top nurseries cost an average of £30,000 a year, five times more than the average fee, and more than half the population earns in a year. Many nurseries have waiting lists, and parents are spending more on childcare as they are unable to stay at home or are opting out of the UK’s free childcare system. The issue has been highlighted as many families struggle to make ends meet, with childcare being one of the most expensive costs. The disparity between the rich and the poor is highlighted, with the wealthy being able to afford childcare while the less affluent are often unable to.
