Holding answer received on 18 February 2019

Parents of children aged 0-2 in England that use childcare reported paying an average of £79 per child per week during term-time in 2018. The amounts paid by families vary depending on the amount of childcare used by their child, by the number of children in the family, by childcare provider type used, and by home region.

This data is published as annual official statistics from the ‘Childcare and Early Years Survey of Parents’.
