The UK day nursery market was worth an estimated Pounds 2.15 billion in 2002, more than five times its value at the start of the 1990s, according to a recent report published by the healthcare consultancy Laing & Buisson. Private sector providers generated 1.93 billion of the total, with the lion's share coming from sole traders or partnerships, which had a total income of 1.05 billion.

The market's total value grew by an estimated 16.5 per cent between 2001 and 2002.
