Pfft. I have always kept my kids in daycare when I was on maternity leave. Why? To bond with the new baby and because getting one child into daycare was ok, but trying to get a vacant spot for 2 kids would've been difficult enough. I even had 3 kids in daycare for 18 months and it would've been impossible to find a spot for all my 3 kids if I didn't keep the other 2 in daycare whilst I was on maternity leave.

Especially childcare routine.
Anyway childcare availability is another issue all together. Yes we lack spots in inner cities.
Rather than kicking people out of care why not create more centers?! That's where the gvt should focus their work and attention.
It's disgraceful to try and feed the SAHM vs working mum feud.
I'm a working mum and support 100000% that non working parents have the same access than I to childcare services.

I work 4 days as the family day care my son is in only operates monday to thursday, so i dropped a day of work when i went back after maternity leave. This suits me as i wanted him in this particular fdc and i get to spend fridays with him while dh is at work. I don't get "time to myself". Pregnant with number 2 now and not sure what I'll do if there's no spots at the fdc for this one too, or how much subsidy we will get with the proposed changes and if we will even be able to afford childcare anymore. I may have to work nights. we can't afford for me to not go back to work either way.

I scoff my morning tea and lunch in one short break at 1030am, because I know I won't get time for a lunch break. And as for adult conversation.... I talk all day long, but cognitively sound people or people who have a full understanding of english so that I can actually have a conversation with them, are hard to come by at my work!

No more subsidised childcare for non-working parents?

I'm stressing about this. My kids get rebate and I'm on disability pension. So I won't get rebate? So even people studying.
I actually have anxiety 😳
