Also I just want to categorically state that I totally believe that working parents are absolutely more deserving of a childcare spot than parents who just want to be at home without their kids.
It would blow my mind if someone thought otherwise (I never have, thank god).

Where i live, day care spots can be ver hard to come by. I know several friends who put their names down at 5-10 centre's when pregnant only to be offered maybe 1 spot when their child was 12 months, if they are lucky.
I think 1-2 days a week is fine if you are at home, especially if you're looking after a younger child/special needs child/carer to someone else. Where i am anyway, having 5 days a week of day care to a non working parent would seem a bit much as a lot of parents have to put off returning to work as they simply can't find a daycare spot. So it might irk some parents who really need to go back to work.
Personally, i'm not sure why you'd want to put a young child or baby in day care 5 days a week when you aren't working but that's just me. Everyone's situation is different and you really never know what is going on in someone else's life.

Mine are in child care full time.
Im at uni full time.
When im on holidays I only send them 3 days a week so I can spend more time with them but so they still have the child care routine (so they aren't all upset when uni starts back up).
On the days I do send them and dont have uni I feel awfully guilty like I shouldn't be sending them.
I don't think children should be in full time care if their parent/s are purely stay at home parents (not caring for a sick/disabled family member or the like)
I think two days should be the limit in that instance for socialization, development a break for the parent if they have little to no support etc. I think majority of stay at home parents only do two days anyway as most are only eligible for ccb or child care rebate for two days, therefore can't afford more.
I dearly miss being a stay a home mum and being able to devote my whole day just to my children.

My friend used to be a live in Nanny for an extremely rich family in Valcluse. Why do we never hear *****ing and judging over families like that. And no she didn't work, she went to charity champagne lunches and hung out with the other rich ladies who all had nannies.
I've never known a person in real life to put their kids in day care 5 days a week for no reason. Ever.

Because they get no rebates, CCB and aren't taking a spot away from
someone else. But yeah in all honestly I'd still wonder why they paid $50k a year for a nanny full-time if they didn't work. And when I say wonder I mean judge, if I'm honest.
