I am wonderng what people are paying in childcare fee's? A bit NOSEY i know ! I am really unsure what we will be paying next financial year.. I will earn $30,000 my partner will earn $61,000. I am paying top rate ATM but I do know places vary, as I am paying $37 a day for 6hrs at a family daycare...
Hmmm, I'm pretty sure that you'd still qualify for at least part of the childcare benefit. I'm pretty sure the cutoff is over $100k? Perhaps call C/link and check with them?
And $37 for a half day is pretty excessive! Especially for family daycare. They're supposed to be cheaper.
We pay $68 per day for DS (full price). But we get 50% of that back with the rebate (which you'd get too if you both are working/studying). Although, his is part of a private school (early learning centre). His old daycare, we paid $2 less per day, I think.
