    We paid $600 a week when DD was in full time child care.

    After the rebate it would have been reduced to $450 OOP.

    Now she is at preschool it is $132 a week for three days with no rebate. Factoring in school holidays it's about $5k a year. Much better than $22k a year!

    That's based on $125 per day which for three days a week, paying 50 weeks a year is $18,750. The rebate is max $7,500 so our out of pocket is $11,250, or $75 per day for 150 days a year.
    Wow op $125 is so expensive I guess that's because of the area.

    We live near the blue mountains in nsw and ours is $78 per day. After CCR and CCB we pay $77 per week for 2 days with 1 child in care.

    We pay $80 per day and get the CCR come tax time so I've never really worked it out :S

    It's kind of amazing how much more money we're going to have once DD starts full time school.

    My out of pocket expense is $35 a day for our child care centre in north/east Melbourne. I think I get CCR and CCB but it confuses me!

    But flat 50% CCR and letting it be claimed for nannies to take some pressure off the daycare system is the way forward!
    I can't claim because my Family day care mum is not registered. She's technically just a 'nanny/babysitter'. She does it because she loves children and to help out young families that she knows, but doesn't register because she would drown in paperwork!

    I agree with your last paragraph.

    The centre is $85 a day, all meals and nappies included.

    I was paying $17.50 a day after CCB and CCR but now studying to get back in the workforce so have extra funding which means I pay $5.75 a day for the next 9 months. Rebate goes directly to the centre

    We pay $25 per child per day out of pocket. That's based on the full cost being $80 per child per day - CCB and CCR.
