Families are entitled to up to £2,000 a year to help with the cost of childminders and nurseries.

The PM said take-up is “disappointingly low” and he is determined to fix it to help with the cost of living pain.

He told Mumsnet “I am looking at a few thingsto ease childcare costswhich are the highest in Europe.

“One is to make it easier to be a childminderthey can make a huge difference

“The other thing iscan we be more flexible in the way you spend your entitlement to childcare?

“Things like tumble tots or little kickersyou can’t use childcare funding for but maybe you should be able to in the future?”

He said he wants to “encourage take up by having more flexibility”.
