Data set from Childcare and early years provider survey

Proportion of providers increasing fees

Latest data
Last updated

A time series of the proportion of providers who reported increasing fees charged to parents in the previous 12 months, broken down by child age and by provider type.  Only a very small proportion of children aged under 2 are enrolled at school-based providers so figures for fees for under 2s enrolled at school-based providers are based on small sample sizes.
