Crazy daycare costs... What do others pay? Rss

Just looking at enrolling our 2nd child in daycare. To have a 1 year old & 3 year old in daycare is about $450. I know other places even more than this. What is everyone else paying?
DD's daycare is $220 for 5 days without the 20 hour subsidy. To have a 3 year old and 1 year old full time (well 5 days) would be $390 I think.
They provide meals but not nappies and it is a 2 day minimum regardless of hours.

My kids don't go there anymore but for a 1 & 3 yr old at their old preschool was $370. We had to provide nappies and lunch but not morning or afternoon tea.
wondering if maybe you could look at nanny share or an au pair.
We get a subsidy for our daycare without it we would pay $110 for two full days, Otherwise we pay $46 per week. This is including meals and nappies smile





I pay 82 per dayer child I pay half due to the childcare rebate..
