Cost is a big issue as it prevents people from using this facility
Want prices reduced but not the quality
Cost is too expensive – more women on state rather than getting work
Some parents only willing to pay as low as 50p to £1 for a couple of hours
Cost of living and inflation is effecting everyone so parents are dropping days at childcare
Black families use grandparents’
Want children to have exposure to ‘more culture and different cultures’
African Caribbean community perceive childcare to be too expensive – use families

Do not want to pay for childcare would rather use family and friends

Good location and good for work. It was built for that purpose
Community spirit and togetherness like family
Activities were good, not just games, such as learning opportunities
