One in three working mothers would quit their jobs to raise their children if they could afford to, new research reveals.
A government-backed study shows more than a quarter of parents also struggle to meet their childcare costs.
On average, families are paying out around £54 a week on nurseries, babysitters, childminders and after-school care.
Some 37 per cent of all mothers in paid work said that if they could afford to give up work, they ‘would prefer to stay at home and look after the children’ (file picture)
The Ipsos Mori survey, funded by the Department for Education, questioned 6,393 parents in England with children aged under 15 between November 2012 and June 2013, for their views on childcare.
Some 37 per cent of all mothers in paid work said that if they could afford to give up work, they ‘would prefer to stay at home and look after the children’.
More than half – 57 per cent – said they would like to work fewer hours if they could.
Labour’s shadow childcare minister Lucy Powell said the survey was evidence that families were struggling
Only 23 per cent said they would work more hours if they could arrange good quality childcare which was ‘convenient, reliable and affordable’.
The most expensive type of childcare was a nanny or au pair costing on average £202 a week, followed by a day nursery (£105 a week on average) and a nursery school (£86 on average).
The cheapest were breakfast clubs (£14 a week) and after-school activities (£22).
The poll found that 32 per cent of parents rated the affordability of local childcare as very or fairly good, while 29 per cent were unsure and 39 per cent said it was very or fairly poor.
While almost half (49 per cent) of those surveyed said they found it easy or very easy to meet their childcare costs, a substantial minority – 27 per cent said it was difficult or very difficult.
