    About $105 per day before CCR. This includes all meals/nappies. Formula/breastmilk has to be supplied by parents. Working full time CCR ran out 2/3 of the way through the year. So if I work full time when I go back to work (currently on mat leave) for 1/3 of the year, for 2 kids I will be laying over $2,000 per fortnight!!!

    Wow! ours is $66 per day before any CCB or rebate. I must have lucked out on our child care centre. I think they are putting their fees up by $5 per day in the new financial year though, which still makes their prices reasonable. When DS was in full time care (he's at kindy 5 days a fortnight now) after CCB and rebate it cost me about $27 or so per day.

    $78 a day before rebates. We pay $80 a week for 2 full days with a little bit of CCB and CCR. I'm happy with that. Everything is included at our centre.

    $82 a day each before rebate. I've got 2 kids in daycare 3 days a week. Everything included. We get no ccb, only the rebate.

    My eldest goes to before and after school care 3 days a week and it costs $75 before rebate.

    $98 per day for the 2-3yo room, 3 days a week. That includes all food (and it's nice food too, cooked on the premises by their full time cook). We supply nappies.

    We don't get CCB but do claim CCR, so we're roughly $150 out of pocket each week. It's definitely still worth me working those 3 days but will need to reassess when we've got 2 requiring daycare for me to go back to work.

    ETA: we're in suburban Sydney.

    $83 a day for full time, all included but formula/nappies.

    We are OOP 13k per year after CCR.

    When considering childcare costs it's important to balance it out vs the household income and not just the mum's.
    If partnered parents were to separate both parents would chip in for childcare costs right? So it works the them when doing a household budget.

    And always important to consider superannuation, compound interest, salary raise etc. It may seem too little take home salary while kids are in childcare but it is so important not to overlook long time impact of not working.
