    Default Childcare - how much do you pay?

    $90 a day on the baby room, BYO nappies and food. It's a long hours centre (6:30-6:30) and I drop DD off the second they unlock the door in the morning. We are on the sunny coast. I really like the centre. Wish they did food though.

    Yes I can't wait til next year when DD is in toddler house and I don't have to send food. The centre is vegetarian and the menu looks really good. Am hoping it expands DDs repertoire too as she's a bit fussy at present.

    Does sound like its at the upper end of what people are paying. But if you're happy that's the main thing. I'd probably be happy to pay more where DD is going but lucky the fee is only $93.

    No, I think that's pretty typical for inner Melbourne.

    My son attends long day care, 3 days per week. The centre operates 7.30 - 5.30. We pay $95 a day (DS is 2), this includes all meals, sunscreen and incursions. We still need to bring nappies and sheets for rest time. We don't have to pay for public holidays. This centre is in Sydney about 20kms from CBD.

    Currently only using OOSH (before and after school care, plus vacation care).Before school care is $14 (16 for casual)After school care is $21 (23 for casual)Vacation care for in-centre days is $55Vacation care for excursion days is $75Currently we only do two after school days, and five before school days. We do not get the CCR yet as we are in the midst of proving that we now have 100% care.We rarely use Vacation Care, unless the kids REALLY want to do an activity.ETA: Two kids, aged 8 and 10. So, currently costs us $112 each a week.EATA: Looking at care for DD and it's anywhere from $80-160 per day.
