5 Ideas on how to reduce your Daycare Costs!

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

For example, some of the daycare costs that you may currently be incurring are:

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

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