Have you thought about a Childcare centre that runs a kindergarten program? My Ds attends Casa Bambini (Essendon) 2 days a week, 14 hours and they run a fantastic program.
I know it's more $, but perhaps you could keep your job that way

Sorry that was me who mentioned fees. I just had a look at our invoice and it says it is free for HCC holders.

For example, the price is around $110 per day, I receive $55 back from centerlink, however if our income was less, I would probably receive more. It's something you would have to call centerlink about.
I hope that helps

Thanks for that I appreciate it. I called the kinder. Just waiting to hear back from them. Stupid me doesn't always read mail properly. I could've had an offer at a brand new Centre being built but I ignored it. For some reason in my head I think that a brand new kinder is better. Although the place I got offered isn't that old either

So I'm confused. Why do we go through local council for our application if we can go to any kinder?

Some private centres see the predicament, kinder isn't convenient for working parents, so they run a kinder program. Just make sure it's the Victorian Government Program.

Thanks again for your response. So after ringing around a few daycare places that run kinder programs they are the ones that offer long day sessions. The one I was offered did say I could choose not to send him on certain days but still pay same fee. But would be free on health care card. I'm checking out one tomorrow. Other one is walking distance from home.

It's so time consuming isn't it?! a Good luck with choosing a centre.

It is. Thanks. I guess I could just take the local council run one as the others in my area seem not to be full. There are 2 I could potentially get into.
