I would agree with the comment about doing their homework around costing but whether they will listen or not is a completely different matter.

I'm already losing money by offering a funded place to one child. I'm only losing £6 a week, but it soon adds up. And if you think of a big setting, with lots of children, how much must they be losing.

I have another child due funding next year. If the rates stay as they are, I'd be losing £20 a week. I can't do that, so will have to suggest mum uses a nursery for the funded hours.
