Childcare calculator

Childcare is one of the biggest costs associated with going back to work, and many people find themselves weighing up the costs of returning to work versus staying at home. By filling out some basic information below we'll be able to help you work out your childcare costs using an average cost of childcare provision in your area*. If you know exactly how much each provider will charge you can amend the calculator to use your own figures.

*All costs are based on Daycare Trust childcare costs survey 2015. Please note that the childcare providers rates in your area may vary.

Interested in saving for your family's future?

We're an award-winning children's savings and investments provider*. 

We offer a selection of simple, affordable ways to invest for your child's future.

All of these products invest in stocks and shares so we want to remind you that their value can fall as well as rise, meaning your child could get back less than was paid in.
