Across Britain as a whole, childcare costs have almost doubled over the last decade. A nursery place for a child aged two or under is now 77 percent more expensive in real terms than it was in 2003. An after-school club is 88 percent more expensive, according to the survey.
Over the last year, London has actually seen a lower percentage increase in childcare fees than some other regions.
The report says that the East of England and the South East saw the biggest rise - with costs drawing towards those seen in London.
