5 Tips on how to reduce Childcare Fees!

Many Australian families have started to realise that childcare fees are taking a toll on their finances! In fact, a recent study shows that all day childcare can cost up to $192 a day. However, some good news is that there are ways you can reduce these childcare costs.

For example, some of the childcare fees that you may currently be incurring are:

  • Petrol or public transport to and from childcare
  • Fees if you’re late to pick up your child
  • Excursion fees
  • Some childcare services still require you to pay on public holidays.

In addition, a recent survey suggests that parents are spending twice as much on childcare, as they do on food. In addition, almost 40 per cent of families are paying more than, or equal, to their mortgage in childcare payments each week.

To help you find a way to save on childcare fees, we have our top 5 tips below!
