    I worked out we will pay $50k in fees for 3 kids (1 × long day care, 1 x ELC and 1 x ASC). We will get the 50% rebate and end up paying approx $30k out of pocket for the year - unless they decide to increase it further. It ends up $1030/week before rebates and about $630 after (or thereabouts)... seriously depressing 😳

    Everywhere else is catching up. In theory your fees shouldn't go up too much.

    Ah okay
    My kids aren't in care but I worked in childcare before having my eldest and just finished my cert 3 so was thinking did I get that wrong
    Our only losses should be the co anti vaxxers then

    Ours is up $10 per child per day and I have three children going - that's an extra $300 per fortnight, and with no increase in the rebate - I'm going to be paying full fees for probably the last 3/4 months at the end of the financial year - I may need to rethink working - it's just not possible! Or look into nannies

    Ours increased $2 per day, to $85 per day. After rebates and benefits, we pay $233 per week for 1 child

    I'm in Qld. Our ratios are now 1:11 for 3-5 years , 1:5 15months-3 years and , 1:4 0-15 months. Our fees are not going up (yet) and we will need at least one extra staff member at a day. when fees increase it rarely gets passed on for extra wages / wage increases etc. I've been in the industry a long time....

    Hopefully smaller groupings means better care for the children!!

    We are only starting cc in February with DD who will be 7 months so I'm not 100% sure of what we get back but the fee is $90 day and for her age group we supply food and disposable nappies (they supply cloth for free if we want). She will go 2 days per week as far as I can see we get the 50% rebate plus depending how much I work/earn might get about $10-$20 CCB too so out of pocket about $70-$80 for the 2 days.
