    Hi. I’m seriously considering a career in teaching. I have a young family and I’m struggling to find out exactly what help we would receive with regards to childcare?
    From what I can work out I would receive a maintenance grant which would help with day to day living. Paying mortgage etc but this is only around £6,000 for the year! I’d struggle to pay for any childcare out of this.
