So in other words I only have to pay 42% of the overall cost for the first 24 hours, any additional hours I pay 100% of the cost.

    Dds only there 1 day a week. She needs it more then I do. While I do enjoy lunch with the girls or doing the shopping in peace, shes in care to learn to socialize (something she struggles with) and also to help form good eatting habits. So far she's doing great with both.
    because you get 58% ccb that does not mean they pay 58% of the fees it is worked out on a hourly rate of $3.80ish that is where alot of parents go wrong

    say your centre is open for 12 hours per day and charges $70 so you divide $70 by 12 = $5.83 per hour then the gov will pay up to $3.80 of that per hour so if your on 100% they will pay $3.80 out of the $5.83 where as your on 58% which means they pay 58% of the $3.80 which means they pay around $2.20 per hour which leaves you with a balance of $3.63 per hour x 12 hours which is around $43 i have probably just confused a few ppl with this but it is based on the $3.80 not the full fee

    and you either get 25 hours if you dont work or work under 15 hrs per week or 50 hours if you work over 15 hours they dont do it in 15 hr lots

    I put both mine in occ care 3 or 5 hours a week since they were 1yo. Cost aside, do it! Its great for your sanity esp if you have no break otherwise. And particularly if you get a good feel about the centre

    Only claim to work if you are in paid work. Otherwise you are committing fraud.

    Yes I know but a pp said to just tell them you work. The same with studying or volunteering, only say you are if you are, otherwise it's dishonest.

    I WILL suggest one thing though. More of a pleading request. PLEASE make it known that you are flexible for your day. If somone needs the day you have, you can swap. I say that because it can be so hard to get work to give you hours you need when you need that income. And to try and have work line up with daycare is like trying to play jenga in an earthquake.
    I'm putting DS in one day a week next year on a Thursday. I don't know if it's all centers but the ones I spoke to you still have to pay for public holidays even if they are shut.
    I'd think about changing to a Wednesday, but not any other day for this reason.

    Unless it is occasional care than yes, I believe so.
