Before we had DD, we were both working full time and had 2 kids in full time daycare 5 days a week- it was $85 per day per child, and we received 50% back up to the threshold. All things considered, it was exceptionally good value for money.

DD is in daycare 5 days a week, after CCR it's $172.50 a week, so $34.50 a day OOP. The centre is Redlands area in Brisbane.

$78 per day 3 days a week. Then 50% CCR so $39 per day.
We are in inner city Adelaide in a private school ELC. siblings get sibling discounts too so next kid is 10% off, one after that 20%, one after that 30%

[QUOTE=kw123;7242551]Why are some people saying they don't get CCR? It's not means tested. Are you not citizens?
[QUOTE] Once you exceed 12 months maternity leave you no longer qualify for CCR. If you are not working or studying you do not get it.

We get 0% benefit.
My children's daycare costs $77.50 a day each. They go 2 days. So one week of childcare fees costs me $310 but with rebate $155.
The fees cover all meals, snacks, sunscreen, water, hat etc. the centre has a cook each day. It's a non-profit, council run centre.

We get 0% benefit.
My daily fee is $85. Inc: meals and snacks (when in nappies it included wipes, but I provided nappies and when he had bottles I provided formula).
I receive the quarterly child care rebate, which isn't income tested. Capped at $7500 per child, per year.
I thinks there's is some confusion about child care rebate & benefit. The benefit reduces your daily fee according to what % your entitled to (based on income -the cut off and 0% benefit I believe is $140,000).
The rebate is 50% of your our of pocket expenses, capped at $7500 per child, per year. You can get this paid, weekly or fortnightly to your daycare provider therefore reducing your fees or directly to yourself f/n, quarterly or annually (at tax time). Ppl can get caught out doing this though as once that $7500 is used, and you are getting it paid to your daycare, it may run our before the new financial year and you will be paying a higher rate of daycare fees than what you were used to or budgeted for.

When in Bris we paid $80 application fee for DD to go on wait list (not attached to a school) which was just money down the drain as we moved and I didn't end up going back to part time work.
I think day cares need to get $$ in anyway they can sometimes.

$32 a day I don't get ccr when I asked at Centerlink why I don't get it I was told "because you have no reason to put your kids in care you don't work or study"

I think about $46.75 after CCR and CCB. We're in Canberra and DD goes 4 days.
