    Default Regular childcare provider for Saturdays and later nights?

    There is a scheme called in home care that some nanny agencies and family day care provide- you need to meet certain criteria to qualify but it's basically a nanny in your home which you get ccb and ccr on- parents who work non conventional child care hours is one of the qualifying items. Google in home care for your area- our local agency allows us to find our own nanny then they employ them so we get ccr and ccb on the payment. There is often a wait list as each agency is funded for so much per year.

    Sassy as someone who has relied on nannies a lot over the years my suggestion would be to try and find two people if you can and share the load betweent them. If you are working your way up in a new industry you need people you can rely on, and teenagers aren't always incredibly reliable. At least if you have a back up you have someone to cover a night where the other one can't do it. Even with the most reliable people in the world people get sick or take holidays and you might still need to work.

    I've always found fabulous people through findababysitter. They actually select the times they are available and quite a few in my experience say afternoons/ evenings as they are students.

    Good luck finding someone. It's a very exciting time and once you can sort this out it'll get easier.

    One other thing - would your mother ever stay Friday night and they way she's there Saturday? I have known people who work weekends who have done that and it's win win as childcare is sorted and your mother gets to spend time with your daughter. If it's not every week would she be prepared to do that?

    Do you have a local tafe nearby? Perhaps a student studying childcare might be interested in doing it.
    If not a reliable high school student

    You mention she already goes to after school care so I would ask her current carers, most school age care givers are studying and do before and.after school shifts to fit uni hours.

    Maybe one of her current carers could take her back home to your house after daycare on your late shifts and work for you on saturdays? Your dd will already know them and you'll get the bonus of knowing she is with someone safe and still get the ccb/ccr rebate when she is in after school care too.
