I'm pretty sure the Modern Award is Aus wide now, for a cert 3 you will get between $18.29 to $20.94 an hr dependent on role and time employed. Some places such as local councils or other organisations may pay more and you will get more as a casual obviously.

I work in a private child care centre as a food co-ordinator. All r staff are on individual contracts ranging from $12 p.h. for trainees to $18/$20 p.h. for Diploma staff. I think that there are more set rates in franchises rather than privetly owned centres.

Look up the fair work ombudsman site and follow the links to the children's services award. It tells you all the award rates.

Can I just say, these rates of pay are absolutely disgusting. You are in charge of THE most important little people in the world and are paid a pittance.
I take my hat off to you all.
When I become Prime Minister, you are all first on my to do list.

Im in childcare but work through an agency. I'm a qualified teacher but when work is skint I take whatever shift is on offer, which means taking a pay cut.
As a casual Cert 3 through an agency I get roughly $22 an hour. As a Diploma trained I get $26 and as a teacher I get $38.
So the more you study, the higher the pay.
