Cost of childcare

The cost of childcare is dependent on the type of childcare provider you choose for your child. Costs can vary widely. It’s recommended that you research all options before making a decision on childcare.

You will need to contact individual childcare providers to find out their exact prices; however, some do provide us with their cost details and you can find these on the Norfolk Community Directory.

In September 2016, the average hourly cost of childcare in Norfolk was £3.93 for childminders, £3.55 for pre-schools and £4.45 for day nurseries.

For information on the different types of childcare available visit Types of childcare.

Every year the Family and Childcare Trust reviews the cost of childcare across the country. Here is a link to the Childcare Costs Survey 2016.
