    Daycare is $86 a day.

    After rebates and when I was working full time it was costing $320 a fortnight for 5 days. (That's with ccb ccr going to the centre).

    Now both of us are unemployed/studying and DD goes 3 days. We're paying $50 a week after ccr/ccb. We're getting full rebates and benefits at the moment.

    Default Daycare and before and after school care

    You can't get a daycare that supplies food for under $110 a day where I live. Most you're looking at $110-$130 per day.

    I have 2 kids and am only eligible for CCR (not CCb). To put both in care 5 days per week would cost (after rebate) $1150 per fortnight for 2/3 of the year then $2300 per fortnight for 1/3 of the year.

    For me it's a matter of working out what (financially) is the best number of days to have kids in care and then working my/hubby's hours around that.
