    Default Approved Kindy in LDC?

    Just wondering if anyone is able to explain to me how fees would work for an approved Kindy program in a long daycare centre? Do you still pay normal daycare fees, or would it be fully subsidised?

    Thanks

    Hey. You pay childcare fees. And get CCB and/or CCR if applicable.

    So my friend was saying that she's enrolled her DD into a community kindy and it's fully subsidised, shre just pays a small admin levy. Would this be correct for a stand alone kindy?

    I think so. You still pay something but nowhere near as much as a stand alone kindy. But the downside is you have to actually be there at drop off and pick up, so no flexibility.
    DD1 did long day care kindy. But for DD2 I'm probably going to do council run kindy

    Like a C&K kindy?

    They work differently than childcare.

    They have specific hours and are 5 day fortnights or something.

    The fees would depend on the kindy as they are subsidised differently than childcare.

    Yeah she's sending her DD to a C&K. I'm happy with DS1 only doing the 9-3 5day fortnight if it means less $$, as I'll be home with DS2 anyway, so not bound by working hours.

    Have a look into it. I can't due to work soon so DS goes to childcare kindy - but if you are at home its a good option.

    The only drawback is that he can't start until 2018, and I don't want to have to change him from a daycare where he's settled to go to a separate kindy... but I'm considering just keeping him out of daycare until then and finding a playgroup for socialisation instead. Decisions, decisions!

    Stand alone Kinders also close over school holidays so if you are working that's an extra consideration. LDC is open.

    That's why I'm changing for DD2. DD1 is in school now and will get holidays, DD2 would be filthy to be sent when she didn't have to go
