I pay $72 per day for my 22 month old, and centre is open 7:30am-5:30pm.  This includes all food.  I am in the Kimberley, and the 3 other centres where I live all charge the same rate.

We are charged for public holidays, but get make up days.  The centre has just been overtaken by a private cc provider, but not abc.

We pay $100 a day that's before rebates.

There are only 12 kids at the centre with 4-5 carers. So great ratios.

Includes breakfast (if they need it), morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and nappies, milk if they need it. Everything basically.

It's expensive but there is no price on great carers.

Regarding public holidays, I am surprised the amount of people that have commented on paying for them. The staff still have to be paid for a public holiday so obviously we would still have to pay fees. I know as a full-time worker I get paid for public holidays.

Yes, the staff still get paid. But what other business do you know that charges when they are providing NO service, when they are actually closed.  The majority of business absorb the costs of staff for public holidays into the other days of business.

My daughter has speech pathology sessions on a Friday - if it falls on a public holiday, we do not pay for that day, because the staff are holidays.

I know my preschool doesn't charge for public holidays - the money to pay the staff for the public holiday comes out from the OTHER days fees.

It all comes down to running a business - you set prices to cover your expenses and potentially make a profit. Majority of business see public holidays as a expense to the business. So you make sure whatever you are selling the rest of the time, when you are open, covers ALL the expenses.

$80 per day, including meals (ie, about $74 after current CCB, which we won't get from 1 July). I'm in Melbourne's eastern suburbs. My son goes for two full days - mainly to give me a breather as I can't seem to shake off this goddamn PND! ph34r.gif
