Chilcare for 2 year old for mum on student visa

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I'm planing to move to Australia on student visa Masters program for the November '19 intake. My husband and my 2 year old will accompany me. I'm aware that I can work 20 hrs a week and my husband has full work rights, but as new entrants it would be difficult for both parents to work if no one to look after our daughter. So below are my concerns, anyone will previous similar experience, please share ur experiences and views.

Will it be possible to find a playgroup or child care easily to fit our budget ?

Will we eligible for any waivers or subsidies for my daughter's childcare ?

No subsidy - it'll cost you around $120 a day. Whether you can find a place or not rather depends on the waiting lists for places.  Universities usually have child care with priority given to students.
