I think that's about right unfortunately. Unless you are eligible for both CCR (which as a PP said you can get while on mat leave, otherwise need to be working or studying) and CCB then I think most people pay about $40-$60 per day.
Full daycare fees vary between about $70 and $130 per day depending on the centre.
I get CCR but not CCB and pay $45.

Sounds about average.
Different centres charge different amounts but they are all roughly in that ballpark.
I get ccr and ccb (on mat leave). They charge $96 a day for a 3 yo, it's more expensive the younger they are. My out of pocket costs are $47 a day. My centre provides morning and arvo tea (usually fruit and bikkies) and lunch but not nappies.

If you have a health care card, depending on your state, you may be entitled for fee relief for approved preschools (not daycare).
I know where I am there is only 1 preschool and 6 daycare centres so getting a spot at a preschool is almost impossible (getting a spot in daycare was hard enough!). They do give preference to low income families though.
Eta: you will get fee relief but with preschools you do not get ccb (or is it ccr?) so it can actually work out more expensive lol!

I think it's 12 months mat leave - the period where your employer holds your job open. but you'll get it for your 14 mths if you are on 10 weeks AL, that would be classed as work.

I'm only working for a couple of hours a week, tutoring. Should i be applying for the ccr?? I haven't because i didn't think I'd qualify with that amount of work.
