I have decided to get an au pair rather than get childcare for my son. That way he gets one on one care and if you get someone that is willing for a few incentives to work for around the amount you would pay a childcare centre (or less in some cases) for experience with children and accomodation/food, its a pretty cheap alternative.

I am registered with www.newaupair.com.au and have found two pretty great girls. It costed $50 to get premium membership so i could view the contact details but its cool and its worth it.

if anyone would like further information or if they would like the contact details for the girl that we dont choose out of the two girls we are communicating with, email me on [email protected]
