Research your childcare options

   

 - Research your childcare options
Childcare is a tricky area and one that is bound to drain your bank account quite considerably for most people. 

However, George Osborne has announced that there will be a £1,200 childcare tax break for working parents starting in 2014.

Obviously there are good and bad points to this news - the negative being that stay-at-home parents will not be better off - but overall this is a great break for parents. 

Sometimes it is good to split your childcare between a childminder in the morning and a nursery in the afternoons rather than a full-time nanny or au pair. 

Check within your local areas what nurseries and options are available. You can do this through the Family Information Servies website.
