New research from Yoopies, one of Europe’s biggest online care platforms, reveals the true effect that the government’s 30 hours free childcare scheme has had on hourly childcare costs.
Whilst the scheme has been purse friendly for parents with offspring in funded preschool or nursery places, families using in-home care – such as nannies – have not been so well off.  Prices hiked by 4.1 percent in the last year alone, increasing from £8.16 in 2017 to £8.50 in 2018.
