Hi, there.

I have a question regarding childcare costs in Auckland. I'm looking for a daycare for my younger kid (3 years old).

Every place I've been at is charging around $160 - $180 per week, ECE included. Considering three days of attendance, I managed to get around $50 per day.

I was wondering if these costs are realistic, given that, for 3 days, I would only be paying for 3 extra hours (6 ECE per day + 1 extra).

When my first kid attended a daycare, he was completely covered by the ECE funding and I had to pay a donation of around $20 per week.

I would be really grateful for any information.
