    Our is about $82 (i think) per day, meals included, before any rebate/benefits. Ends up costing us about $20.
    DD is often only in for half a day. I can't remember the full cost, but it ends up costing up $12 for half a day.

    My eldest goes to before and after school care 3 days a week and it costs $75 before rebate.
    Do you mind if I ask whether that $75 figure for BASC is per day or per week?

    When considering childcare costs it's important to balance it out vs the household income and not just the mum's.
    If partnered parents were to separate both parents would chip in for childcare costs right? So it works the them when doing a household budget.

    And always important to consider superannuation, compound interest, salary raise etc. It may seem too little take home salary while kids are in childcare but it is so important not to overlook long time impact of not working.
    When I separated with my ex I was left with the child care bill. Out of all the parents I know who separate the child care bill is left with the person who the children are with most of the time and who needs the care to work.

    That said I guess CCB would adjust accordingly.

    it varies so muchdoesnt it?

    DH and I were thninking of bub no.2 but with my work I will have to go back after 2 month(good pay, competitive position) and once DH starts working he cant take time off either so bub will HAVE to goto dayccare full time ...which is hard in itself..hate the thought of a young baby in daycare ....plus the expense.. so for now no more kids for us,,

    I used to pay $148/day all included for childcare in Sydney CBD but now we've moved him closer to home and we pay $92/day

    Unfortunately, these prices are pretty standard and we are very lucky to have found a non for profit centre that keeps costs down.

    what? how is this fair? surely it can't be right
    if the care was 50/50 the other parent would pay for childcare too so it seems only logical that even if the other parent doesn't have 50/50 care he/she still pays for half of childcare cost.

    I don't think CCB would adjust for that if the parent that has the custody is on a high income
