I have a 4 year old and 2 year old. We are moving to Canberra in Dec and I will start full time work in Jan (I haven't worked for 5 years since my eldest was born).
We have not been to Canberra and not sure of the area. Currently, I am trying to work out where things are and how to find a childcare and Preschool for my kids and not sure where to start!
1. Can someone point me to Preschools in Gangahlin and Lynham? I don't know where we are going to live yet.It is also going to be Dec and should I start right now to check and put him on waiting list or should I wait until I arrive first?
2. Are there Family Day Care in Canberra who might be able to fit in my 2 children in? We have things like YMCA family day care in Queensland. Is there something like that in Canberra?
I am on a low wage too and have to put both kids at childcare full time.
I did a rough calculation and I will only get a few hundreds more compared to not working (Childcare is $100+ a day and it will be $1000 for both kids, 5 days a week) but I need to start somewhere so, just got to bite the bullet and do it. So, looking for best options of childcare if someone can advise please.
