Also a rebate on nannies! We can't afford one but I am sure there are loads who currently use daycare who would get a nanny if they got the $7.5k rebate, which would free up spaces for everyone else.

Part time Nanny, gardener, chef, personal trainer, cleaner. Actually I don't need a husband, I need a 1950's wife!

Daycare quarantine here too please. 24 hour, 7 day a week daycare would be nice too for shift workers!

We need longer daycare hours, and weekend hours. I work 9-5.30, officially. Technically, I'm in the salon from 8.30-5.45 at minimum, and I NEED to be there at those times or I don't have time to setup or clean afterwards. DD's school is about 1/2 hour from my work... and I have to drive in peak hour traffic (obviously), meaning that trip is usually longer.
I drop her at school around 7.50am (she starts at 8.25am), but I pick her up from daycare usually right on 6.30pm, when it closes.
I also work some weekends, and I have to rely on DP. DP is not DD's father though, so if we broke up... I'd be screwed. I have nobody to rely on for care, and obviously, I couldn't afford a babysitter/nanny for those days, and in my industry, it's REQUIRED you work weekends (at least 1 day).

As a shift working parent, 24 hour childcare and weekend childcare would make life do much easier.

I would like just one back-up person!
As far as juggling work and DS, it would really help to have someone to help in the mornings getting him dressed, fed, drop to daycare so I can get off to work easily.
I could really use a cleaner too!

I would love a back-up daycare too... I remember my mother had a babysitting ring when I was younger - a group of women who, if you needed a sitter, you'd spread the word and someone would do it. For free. It just mean you were expected to occasionally babysit kids too.
Meh. I'd do it if it meant I wasn't stuck if something happens with DP (like when he travelled for a funeral recently, I got my friend to babysit so I could work Thursday night... at which point she fainted... so I had to come home, and was worried about her!).
