With nursery schools now costing more than many people earn, parents of young children have admitted having jobs mainly so that they can spend their days with adults.

Father-of-three Tom Logan said: “I just give all my wages to something called Tiny Tots.

“I don’t actually know what ‘Tiny Tots’ does, it could be a pre-school version of the Hitler Youth to be honest.

“Anyway, if I didn’t do that I’d be at home covered in jam and faeces.”

Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “I’m working all the time so I rarely get to see my kids. Which is kind of the point.

“I don’t particularly like my office job, but it’s a damn sight more fun than trying to stop a pair of tiny, utterly ignorant humans from killing a cat.”

When asked what they actually did in return for their extortionate fees, nursery school teacher Mary Fisher said: “We deal with your kids.”
