Setting Own Rates?

I was just wondering if there are any family daycarers in Sydney who can give me some information on this. Do the family daycare schemes now allow those providing licensed care to set their own rates (i.e not have to stick to the scheme rates of about $4-6 per hour)?

Just become a private family day carer and you can charge what you feel is appropriate-just advertise-they is a childcare shortage and people need care
depending on where you live-some councils set the rate, other dont....also I think this is about to change as a new council policy will now allow the carers to set the rate, depending on qualifications and experience

I use to be a FDCarer & have just moved to Merrylands. All the schemes i conatcted (Parramatta, Holroyd & Blacktown) have all said that their carers set their own fees. They set a base rate, but carers are able to set their own fees if they wish.
The Parramatta scheme told most carers are charging between $5.00 & $5.50 per hour & then adding the levy on top. So the parent ends up paying about $6.00 per hour.
