For god's sake. I just had a look around another centre today and they are asking for $100 to just go on the waitlist!

We are now finally in another centre (previously paying a nanny) and the daily rate is $94. With rebates my OOP is about $35-40 per day (it fluctuates). I really hope that drops when I have to put DS2 in at te end of the year. Otherwise being a new single mummy it will be very hard.

We've paid $150 application fee each for DD and soon to be DS to go on the wait list for ELC (DD will start next year and DS the year after). It's 18months that they take them from. That's not guaranteed but the ELC is attached to the school they will attend so I've been told DD is in and basically that means DS will be too.
Once accepted and they start it's $200 enrolment fee (each).
Then DD's fees will be $95/day for 48 weeks of the year. We only receive the 50% thing back so I'm assuming we get the full 50%? Therefore our out of pocket fees will be approx $4500 for the year. Based on her going 2 days per week.
Cheaper than what her school fees will be.

Before ccb and ccr it's $86 a day.
I am based in country vic.
We are on one wage and i am studying, the benefits we recieve help us alot. We could never afford $86 a day. I am a SAHM with 2 kids and i dont see CC as a luxury - i hate DD being there even though she loves it, i feel she's supposed to be home with me and i feel guilty about her going.
