So I just did the online estimator and triple checked it to see what our childcare fees would be and what we would still get in ftb if I was to return to work 2 days per week.
Childcare would be $80 a day ( after rebates) and before & after school care $13 a day ( after rebates) I know the exact full cost of centre ( $118 a day) and school care so I'm sure calculations are correct. So total $375ish fortnight in fees.
Combined income would be $75,000 a year. We would end up with around the same money after all the care fees and what we would lose in ftb so there's no point in me working.
Does this sound right? 😔 So disheartening.
