    Which is bullsh!t. Even if you are doing nothing all day, you're paying for 12 hours and it's at your discretion as to whether you send your child for the full day.

    Exactly!! Because even if I wanted to sleep all day, I'm still paying $100+ for the privilege like everyone else with a kid there.

    Don't get me wrong, I agree with at risk kids and working parents getting in first because this country has a major daycare problem, but once you're in, you should be treated the same.

    The bottom line is that the centre is delivering a fee for service model and the families, working and non working, are the customers who have paid for the service.

    Default Letter to non-working parents

    It's the equivalent of charging for a buffet but telling overweight people they can't eat from the dessert section as "they don't need it".

    It's blatant discrimination.

    I think this is the best way of summing it up!

    It comes down to the fact that people (and the government) are paying for a service that is being denied based on discrimination.

    Unschooling, wasn't your first son in daycare for 2 days a week and you never used to pick him up until 6pm?

    Or then telling them if they must use the dessert buffet they will be charged another $10 despite already forking over the $25 to have all you can eat.

    I would be furious. If I have a place that I am paying for whether or not I'm working that day is quite frankly no ones business. I may have health appointments booked for the whole day, I may be doing something for me for my mental well being. How I pay for the time my child is legitimately booked into that centre is irrelevant.

    Being in paid employment isn't the only thing that can keep you busy or in need of care. Next year, between my study and my volunteer work, I will have far more "busy hours" than my husband but according to this letter, I would still not be entitled to use the time.

    My youngest kids go to preschool only (same as school hours) so I will be juggling it anyway, but I would be livid if I had to juggle it and pay for care I wasn't getting.
