How much do you pay for childcare per day??
On the news today it was reported (in NSW) that cost is going up to $100-160 a day in most areas and with the confusion around CCB and CCR parents end up paying most of the cost
I get minimal CCB and no rebate as DH is unemployed currently...
DDs care is $70/day and includes meals (nappies, formula we supply)
afew of my friends are contemplating leaving their job as more than half their pay goes to childcare ..

It was $95 per day with rebate directed to centre. This was for DD and included nappies, formula/milk, and food. As I stopped studying/ working, I didn't want her to take the place of someone who needed the spot, so I pulled her out. It's really hard around here to find care, let alone reliable and friendly care for working mummy's.

We're CBD melbourne and it's $110 a day with everything included. We don't get CCB but do get CCR but at three times a week at 52 weeks (we have to pay for public holidays, sick days, staff professional development days) we spend around $9700 a year after CCR.

Ours was $95 a day with all meals and nappies. We got CCR and CCB paid straight to the centre to only had to pay about $42 per day.
He's in FDC now which charges $8 something per hour and we provide food. But due to lower incomes and higher CCB this year we only pay about $25 a day and he's so happy there 😊

Ours was $115 a day (less if you do 5 days I think...we did 3 days). We didn't get the CCB but did get the rebate, so we'd get half back every week.

I live in Melbourne and pay half day rates (5 hours), it's $55 a day. I think it's around $90 for the whole day.
They supply everything bar formula.

I pay $78/day per child. So that's about $950/fn for 2 children 3 days a week. We do get ccb and ccr back yearly. This is suburban Brisbane. Daycare supplies morning and afternoon tea. I supply the rest.

I pay $73/ day. Includes all food and nappies. The centre charges different rates for the different age groups, that is for a 2 yr old.

$138 in Perth- meals provided but I supply nappies/milk/bedding etc
No ccb but 50% ccr so I'm out of pocket $69/day x 3 days per week
Annoying that I work in a very exclusive area and childcare around my workplace is extortionate
