Manchester parents reflect on childcare plans
As many as 1.9 million working families could benefit from a tax-free childcare allowance worth up to £2,000 per child from 2015-6, under revised plans.
The new scheme, first outlined last year, will be brought in sooner and the maximum parents will be able to claim will rise by £800.
The BBC went to a nursery in Manchester to find out what parents think of the plans, and how much of a drain childcare costs are on their budgets.
