    @rami well for our case ang charge ng daycare is per day pero yung pagdebit sayo ng charge you can choose weekly, forthnightly or monthly yata. We opted forthnightly. Tapos may makukuha ka naman na child care benefit at child care rebate to help you out with the cost so depende sa salary niyo and situation yung out of pocket cost niyo pwedeng mabawasan ng 50-70% yata. Di ako ganoon ka sure kung ano ang max na pwedeng mabawas sa out of pocket.

    Yung sa 4 year old kid mo kelan mo siya plan magschool? Yung iba kase basta magtuturn na ng 5 yung anak nila basta before july ata you can make them go to kindergarten so kapag ganun yung ibang school nagooffer ng before school care and after school care so yung parents can still go to work and pick there kid a bit late. Yung ibang parents opt to make set up with their employer ragarding their work schedule. Lucky na lang for those who can work from home ;)

    @muffles127

    Thanks a lot sa information... Buti meron pla 50-70% child care benefit if both parents are working.. Medyo pricey ata ang childcare sa au. Kung subsidizd ok din pla kahit costly. Standard pla ito sa australia.

    Yearly mo ito makukuha or monthly or fortnightly? If you have 2 or more kids? Mas mataas ba percentage na mkukuha mo?

    3yrs pa lng nman yung anak ko and hopefully kung swertehin mkapunta dyan next year kaya ito gather muna ng mga information...
    Thanks a lot!

    @rami baka nga higher pa sayo kase dalawa sila. Isa lang kase yung akin pero sa pagkakalam ko eh makakakuha ka for both kids eh. Basta may makukuha kang subsidy sa government to help you with the cost so okay na din nakalimutan ko pala sabihin yung price per day nung sa anak ko dati eh 110 per day so yun dito ata by age range yung pricing nila kapag mas younger mahal ng konti.

    Yung sa rebate pwede mo schedule ng forthnightly. Tapos by end of financial year nagrerecompute sila based sa salary na naireport niyo sa ATO so like sa case namin dati may narereceive pa kami na konti by end mas malaki ng konti sa forthnight na nakukuha namin. Kung tama ang pagkakaalala ko :)

    @rami @elleb1

    Sydney based kami. We moved here nung Jan 3 kasama yung 2-yr-old (now 3) daughter namin. Sa isang child care sa Sydney CBD namin sya pinasok.

    $155.50/day from 7:30am - 6pm but since subsidised by the company (part ng benefit), $120/day na lang binabayaran namin for Junior Preschool.
    Ngayon, part-time preschool na sya. $150.50/day naman ang charge ($114/day binabayaran namin).

    We're staying in Hornsby. Nung nag enquire kami sa isang child care centre sa area, $107/day from 8am - 6pm.

    At may extra bayad pag late mo kinuha yung anak mo. $1/minute ang charge dun sa current centre ng anak ko.

    Nakaka-receive kami ng Child Care Rebate(CCR) but not Child Care Benefit (CCB).

    CCB is income tested. Ang CCR hindi. so depende sa income nyo, pwede kayo maka receive ng both CCB and CCR.

    CCR is 7,500/year. We opted to pay the centre and then Centrelink will pay us weekly.
    Sa ngayon natatanggap namin yung half ng weekly charge until ma consume ata ang 85% ng 7,500 na cap per year. then end of the next financial year, ipaparecalculate ang difference.

    Since February na nag start last financial year yung anak ko, nareceive namin half nung binayad namin from feb-june, which is $6000. Yes, $12,000 ang total na binayaran namin for child care from Feb 15 - End June. :(

    Meron naman registered family care. Mas mura and pwede din ma claim sa Centrelink. Meron din naman ibang mga pinoy na nag o-offer na mag alaga. Hindi nga lang ma-claim sa Centrelink.

    @noellee thanks for sharing this malaking tulong sa paghahanda :) me kamahalan nga ang childcare sa Sydney. Both ba kayo nag work kaya cguro hindi na kayo nka receive ng CCB? yung current child care facility nyo ngayon is malapit sa tinitirhan nyo? me waiting list din ba? Sa pag decide nyo pala kung saan titira is based kung saan kayo nkahanap ng work (mejo OT na to hehehe). Maraming salamat!

    Both kami may work. Yung centre nasa katabing building ng office building ko. Wala namang waiting list. siguro nagkataon na may available slots pa. May promo pa nga sila that time na free laptop pag inenrol mo yung bata. :) January kasi yung start ng school year dito. baka yung mga dating nasa preschool pumasok na sa big school.

    Nung dumating kami dito inampon kami nung friend ko na nakatira sa Hornsby. Initially, gusto namin malapit sa City. Pero nung nag stay na kami sa area nagustuhan namin namin. May mall. May asian stores din. may express trains to city. Leafy area. hindi magulo. Medyo may kamahalan lang sa rent yung area.

    Ang alam ko pwede na sya ipasok sa govt school sa year na mag turn 5 sya (as long as 5 na sya on or before July 31). Ok naman daw ang public schools dito. Yung mga anak ng mga kakilala ko sa public school nag-aaral. Ok naman daw ang training. Di ko pa sure san mag-aaral anak ko. Depende. Baka sa childcare centre sya til 6. hehehe

    @noellee buti nman at hindi kayo nahirapan maghanap ng center para sa daughter nyo. Isa kasi yan sa mga considerations namin kung saan kami titira, wala kc kami kakilala (na close samin) sa Sydney. Cge research ko rin yang Hornsby, mag initial entry kami ng march 2017 isa yan sa mga bisitahin ko:) Buti nman kayo at me work din both. Maraming Salamat!

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
