Help with childcare?

I'm a student nurse in Scotland on the open university pathway.

I don't get a nursing bursary as my employer pays me for placements. I only deal with SAAS for DSA, my employer/the Scottish government pays my fees. 

My income is £21,777 pa when I'm on full pay (I've been on mat leave), husbands income is £40,057. 

I go back to uni/work in October and childcare is £1250/month.

Is there any help towards childcare for someone in my position?
