    As a casual I have been getting $23.70 an hour. I have been working as group leader for the past 5 weeks and will be on permanent wages soon but I'm not sure what the rate will be?

    I also can't believe how low some of these pay rates are :-0

    I am a casual cert 3 in a council run centre and get $27 an hour.. I also get a higher rate of super than the standard 9%, think its 12%..

    I work in a LCD, I get $26.30 an hour... Not much for running a nursery, having a trainee, looking after 18 families.... I work most days with out a break, take work home... All for love
    A lot of responsibity....
    Doing my last year of teaching via distance.... Dying with baby brain. Had to go back to 1 subject with a f/t job... Too tired
    I love my job though, never a dull moment

    When I become Prime Minister, you are all first on my to do list.
    Bl00dy oath! Yeah it stinks. I was getting roughly $7 an hour for the first few months (when I worked in a daycare center 9 years ago as a 21 year old) then we got a new boss we all got pay rises, mine went up to $10 an hour. I am almost 30 now and I am studying cert 3 (will be finished in Oct) and I'd be really sh!tty if I was getting a lousy $10 an hour, though I need work so guess I shouldn't complain...much.

    There was a big article on the Sunday's paper last week about wages n quality care /staff...
    Most parents have no idea about the conditionS we work in or how little we get paid.
    It stated most families pay their cleaners more than we would get an hour
    Pretty sad really

    Our permanent staff are on anywhere from $7.15/hr for our 17yo trainee who struggles to pay rent and associated costs, through to $20.87/hr for our 30+ Group Leaders. The only one paid more than $20/hr are qualified casuals or the directed and those higher than her. This is for a big chain, not community centre. Community centres are council run, they are not profit driven and staff are usually on higher wages.

    Im 24 yrs old cert 3 qualified and I get $19 something permanent and was on $23 something when casual. It's good for me because my centre offers a staff discount so I work three days which my dd attends and my fees are $47 a week.
