Currently work full time 4 days pw. Been accepted into preferred childcare full time next year but can do 4 days in care if need be.
5 days will be $40 extra which we can afford and means I potentially have a day to myself ( rather than with DD) what would you do ?

4 or 5 days?

For $40 I would take 5 days no question!! You can always keep them home if you want to or collect early.

Would you hit your CCR cap quicker with the 5 days though, resulting in having to pay full fees for longer?

While a day to myself would be lovely. I would struggle to be away from the kids for 5 days. I was working 3 days prior to this bub and I loved my days off to allow me to do stuff with ds such as swimming, sports etc. Weekends were good but they always seemed to be filled up with friends and family.

I hope to still work 4 days when DS goes to school.... Bliss!
I have promised DH I will do the grocery shopping that day though!

I would use the 5th day of the week to have a lovely day at home with DD

I would want the day to do something special with bubs personally, but it's a personal choice with no right or wrong answer. If you need to do housework/run errands etc. then put bub in five days and ensure you have a family day on the weekend. If you get groceries delivered and hire a cleaner than keep bubs at home with you on the other day. Well that's how I'd decide what to do anyway.

I would want a day with my child. Plus 5 days at daycare is a lot for a little one.

I work full time 5 days out of necessity. If I were in your shoes I would keep DD home the 5th day rather than just have the day to myself. I'd love to only have to send her there 4 days.

I would definitely keep DD home on the 5th day.
5 days a week of childcare is not ideal unless theres no other option imho. I think you would really enjoy that day with your child and not having to do daycare runs etc.
