Looking for advice. Do I stick with 70% towards my childcare costs or Apply for 30 hours free childcare (term time only)? Unfortunately I work all year round and if I lose my Childminder’s place I will not have cover for the school holidays. I currently work 30 hours a week and I don’t know which one would be better both financially and practically. Thanks
I debated this as well and decided it would be easier for budgeting purposes to have the same childcare costs across the year, so I went with that option. I work 4.5 days a week, Mon-Fri, so in a similar situation to you, it sounds.
My son’s free childcare starts 1st April, I CANNOT wait, it will remove significant money stresses 🙂
