Long story short, we love our long service daycare our eldest attends, but it's a 15 month+ centre, so our youngest cannot attend until December/ January.
My cousin just finished her diploma in childcare and had a job lined up but found out she's pregnant and has low immunity to mmr so can't work with kids until after the birth of her child. She then has to find childcare herself.
We joked that she could look after our youngest ( as she'll be around her anyway so it's a known risk) and we have stumbled across Registered carers http://www.humanservices.gov.au/cust...gistered-carer
Does anyone have a family member do this? How much per hour do we need to pay her? Any other info we need to know?
Just trying to work out if it's viable for all parties involved.
Based on incomes we could be eligible for CCB. We opt to get it at the end of year just in case

I've found this fact sheet https://www.dss.gov.au/sites/default...child_care.pdf
But I'm still not sure how much per hour I must pay.
Obviously she'll need to report to CL and tax office income.
After rebate childcare is $60 a day if we get dd2 into another centre, which is just under 3 hours of work ( based on minimum wage) so I'm thinking ( as we need her more than this) that it's not viable if it was a minimum wage thing

We had a similar arrangement with a friend for the past 3 years. We paid her $50 a day and provided food and then claimed back the benefit/rebate (I get them mixed up but just the small one) later. She provided us with special registered carer receipts for us to do that. She would also have her own kids plus other kids some of the days. It was a really great arrangement, and we've only stopped now because we've had another baby and I'm only going back to work part time this time. We did end up being out of pocket slightly more than we did at the Childcare centre that DS now attends but imo it was worth it. She is like a second mum to my DS.

Just to add - our friend probably was doing quite well out of it. 3 days a week DS was there for 5 hours and the other two it was more like 8. We did start with $40 per day and all 5 hour days.

Maybe she could sign up for family daycare?

Has anyone been a carer? Do they claim tax? Is the fee less as they're "self" employed and therefore able to charge what they wanf

I didn't mean your child. If she's only just started out, setting up family daycare through a provider might be best.
