    Default Cost of OOSH/after school care

    Just after a general idea of how much OOSH is. Are there any rebates? Looking at 2 kids in daycare and 2 kids in OOSH for one day a week next year.

    I pay $20 before school care and $30 after school hours per day so $50 total. Yes you can claim CCR and CCB for OHSC

    Before school care is $10 and after school care is $15. With the rebate, I pay $12.50 a day and use it 3 days a week so it costs me $37.50 week. I get the rebate paid to the centre.

    Wow, that's such a range in prices. Will give them a call tomorrow and see what the process is.

    Default Cost of OOSH/after school care

    wow I can't believe how expensive this is
    I always assumed Childcare was the hard time money wise then it was all free, public system all the way

    To those who pay $56 a day, is this inner Sydney?

    I know - I'm a little shocked too by the higher fee ones. Will definitely have to strive for work in order to pay for it!
