    That explains it then. We were foster carers for a lot of that time. The foster kids weren't in day care (they were school age).

    yep that would be it foster carers come under a different agreement on another note and totally off topic how did you go about starting up being a foster carer i would love to do that one day but im not sure if given my age and kids ages they would allow it

    If you earn a combined income over $109,000 you are not eligible for the ccb but you can get the ccr over this amount. My dh and I both earn good money over $200,000 and still get the ccr. If I was a stay at home mum I would not have my kids in daycare for more than a day a week as that's what I would be staying home for In the first place, "to raise our kids". It erks me that so many kids with mums at home take up positions in daycare when working parents often can't get positions for their kids and have to stop work.

    My boys do occasional care. I work 1 day a fortnight but they go weekly. DS1 actually goes twice weekly in prep for kinder next year. They only go for 4 hours though so not a massive day. I frantically clean while they are in as they destroy quicker than I clean when they are home. This week I went and picked up the Christmas layby without them. And had a proper coffee, in a cafe, and drank it while it was hot!

    Meant to, but rarely happens. Especially at our occasional care centre. I've had to beg relatives a few times when I couldn't get them in. Mum already does pick up for me when I work. She takes them to her place, let's them sleep and gives then afternoon tea. I'm usually home shortly afterwards. A full day is hard as she has a few health issues ATM, but most are temporary and not life threatening.

    not all the time as when a child is in a center a child of a non working parent can not be asked to leave they can be asked to change days etc but they do not have to once they are in there in but a center has to try there hardest to try and shuffle a few parents if need be but in my area that is near impossible we have a waiting list that is very long as it is
