Most of the members are happy SAHP or wish they could be SAHP.
However the report mention a survey that shows that of mothers that are not currently working but were before only 19% said they wanted to SAH.
The rest can't find suitable childcare or work is not financially viable.
Of all the mums I know that work FT, pretty much all of them would wish they could drop 1 day or 2. But yes people have to work to earn money and live it's a sad fact of life.

At first blush, one model will leave us worse off but under other models we will be better off.
And if it's not capped, I think we would be better off yet again. We reached our CCR limit in April so had about 2 months of full fees.

For those fortunate enough to receive the ccr and the ccb therefore paying very minimal out of pocket will lose out though but I feel it will be a fairer system all round. I support the changes in regards to sahp. Children should be home with their parents if they can be. While I'm a sahm my ds will be home with me because that's what I'm home for, he doesn't need to be in care.
Does anyone know when these changes are proposed to come into effect if they do? I haven't read the entire proposal yet.

Its completely true, not just for mums but for dads. It used to be very possibly and the norm for one parent to not be working full-time. Now, not so much, not nearly as much. And yes, these days it is a sad fact of life and that's just what I meant.

I fully support working parents having first dibs of child care places. But to say all SAHM's should never use care is narrow thinking imo.

no one seems to pay attention that the new proposed subsidy is not based on the fees we paid?
isn't that a problem?
so if you get a 60% subsidy and your centre charge $100 per day it doesn't mean that you will pay $40 per day.
