Nursery schools always cost more than childminders.
Averagely you get 35 - 40 pounds for a half day session of 5 hours (7.30 - 1 pm, or 1 - 6 pm), full days are in the 65 pounds and above range.
And that's if you secure a place in one convenient for you in the first place.
I'm reasonably aware of the situation in Aberdeen because I'm helping a family member settle in there. As the previous poster said, the ELC entitlement in Scotland is 1140 hours, so my niece will qualify by January and they're even having trouble finding a nursery school reasonably close to them that has space for January.

Na wa oo so nursery is that expensive in Scotland, and here I was complaining when we had to move and was charged £50 for 7am to 6pm. At the former nursery, I was paying £165/ week for full time hours and it was a convenient location and standard wise very okay.

You might stand a chance if you marry your brother wink

Good Morning room... Pls I want to clarify an issue. Is it possible for a brother to be a dependent or apply as a dependent.
Secondly, my brother will travel to UK on a study visa this year. He is in his early 20s in age. Can he invite or bring his senior brother to the UK to be living with him as a dependant?
Thirdly, on what visa would a brother apply for if he is to join his other younger brother in the UK?
Also, Is it true that I can live with my younger brother in UK while he is studying?

If one has that amount to pay someone informally, I believe a nursery is better with proper structure and feeding included for cheaper or similar amount

Nigerian community?
You left Nigeria and you still dey find Nigerians?
Unfortunately, Nigerians abroad are generally no different from or less dysfunctional than Nigerians in Nigeria - you're more likely to find their strange and rather senseless feeling of being in competition with themselves than any genuine desire to help. Relate with Nigerians as individuals, and not as groups, you're more likely to achieve something that way.

And you don't have to head into central london..... All started and finished, whilst doing a number 2...... cheesy

Hilarious - you want Nigeria to cease being Nigeria.
On a serious note, the lack of sensible thinking among those with power in Nigeria is what will kill the country. Why is it not possible for them to simply allow for people abroad to opt to reprint passports, given that all the info is contained in their database in Abuja? All they could have done is to say if you are happy reusing the photo we've already got in our database for you (and we've also got your fingerprints too), pay the fee, we'll reprint your passport for you, and you come to the HC on a specific day and collect it in person.

But no, common sense is not a Nigerian feature, everyone come to Northumberland Avenue and hang around, so we can show how dysfunctional we are.

Congratz bro.
I would like to keep contact.
My wife is also a nurse, she is expected to resume by November. I intend joining her 3 months later as a dependent.

I have been using google to get vast idea of what i can do.
Aside carejob and warehouse jobs which are one of the easy jobs to come by i am looking at running certified courses in medical line so i can gradually fix myself into a skilled related job. .
I am open to other options.

Hilarious.
Person wey dey find papers get limited choice.
And what you call mental issues are probably just the normal oyibo way of doing things, here the difference between those wey dey craze and those wey no dey craze is not always perceptible. You have to learn to roll with it.

Note that women here require plenty of attention too.
