    Default Childcare - how much do you pay?

    So this is a kind of spinoff from the current schooling thread. I thought people might be interested in the different fees people are paying.
    If you use formal childcare/family day care/nanny how much do you pay per day?
    Is everything included (eg food and nappies)?
    Where is your childcare (which state, country, metro, inner city)?
    If it's a centre is it a chain or independent centre?
    If you would like to share how many kids/ages/how many days please do!
    Thanks

    So my responses are:
    1 child 14.5 months old in for 2 days per week
    $93 per day. Discounted rate for absences (I think it's $57 a day) and no fees on public holidays or during their xmas closure.
    I supply food and nappies this year as she is in baby house. When she moves to toddler house in the new year they supply all food. They do supply cloth nappies but I prefer her to use the same nappies we use at home.
    We are in SA and the centre is in the metro area and it's an independent childcare centre.

    For a 3yo $96 a day (more expensive for younger). I think $123 for nursery?
    Regional nsw (wollongong area).
    Not for profit well known Australian wide childcare provider.
    Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (opens 8-6). No nappies provided.
    Pay every week regardless of absences/ public holidays.

    Metro perth, 0630-1800hrs $92/child/day; all meals provided depending on arrival/pickup times, we provide nappies and milk (formula or ebm). Have 2 children in long day care. Also have one school aged child at oshclub full fees are approx $58/day. They provide breakfast and arvo tea. A lot of centres here would rather they provide all food especially due to allergies and food safety laws etc

    How much we pay or how much the centre charges?

    We have 2 in full time daycare at $500 out of pocket per week - we are only eligible for the rebate so full fees are $1000 per week/$100 per child per day. Everything included - we pay that regardless of absence, closures etc.

    ETA - we are in Brisbane Northern suburbs, 10km from CBD. They have 2 centres, and it includes all food, nappies etc.

    If you use formal childcare/family day care/nanny how much do you pay per day?

    For DD (15m) it's $129.00 per day. DS (4yrs) it's $120per day. It's a long day care centre. You pay for all absences and public holidays.

    Is everything included (eg food and nappies)? I supply nappies but all food/activities are included.

    Where is your childcare (which state, country, metro, inner city)? WA - metro/10mins from CBD.

    If it's a centre is it a chain or independent centre?

    Independent centre (but they run 3 centres).

    I have not needed to use it yet but OSH ( before and after school care) at our school is $18 a hour and is available on site from 7am to 6pm - I think you get the child care rebate

    Inner city Perth, 3 days a week - we pay $145/day for DS1 (3 yo) and $155/day for DS2 (1 yo) for 3 days a week. Hours are 7:30 am to 6 pm.

    We don't get charged for the 2 week closure over Xmas. We do pay for absences.
