I have the opportunity to consider an actual Kindy program (instead of day care) for DS1 for 2016 as I will be on maternity leave. He will be 4 in Dec and has been attending the same day care since 6 months so it would be a big change. I am tempted to keep him at Day care two days to do the Kindy program there as its familiar and he has friendships already formed.
My question is with the new changes to child care rebates and I will be essentially SAHM for this year he is at Kindy/day care are we still eligible for rebate if I keep him in daycare? It will definitely swing my options as we won't be able to afford day care without the rebate if I'm not working.
