Pre-School expenses going UP!
Posted in Budget matters, nadine, nathan
Nathan is in K1 and Nadine in Nursery. Both of them attend a full-day childcare centre. We drop them off at 8 a.m. and pick them before 5.30 p.m. The arrangement is perfect for now, as the full day programme occupies them and gives them a very complete curriculum for the academic, aesthetics and social life.
BUT the prices are going up again! We just received a circular that school fees for next year are up by another $134 each per month!!!!!
Look, I understand the need for increase because of inflation, cost of living, etc. But at $134 each in a year?
Ohhhh I wish the government regulation of pre-school education would quickly quickly start! Right now, it’s either grit my teeth and go with it, or change school! There’s no bursary & no negotiation.
I came up with my own ideas to get the best out of this ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FOUR dollars.
EAT more in school… My kids do that quite well!
Use more school supplies? Cut extra paper, colour with more vigour!
Shower many many times?
You can see I’m getting desperate. Any ideas?
I’m whining quite a bit here. Not willing to change school, and not willing to pay the price. Help.

thats a lot! The amount you are going pay extra is slight more then my son's pre school fees! Mine has not raise the school fees for a year, they never raises so much, its always below $50.
Thanks for coming by DinoMama! 🙂 yes, the increase is holding all of us parents ransom.
That's a lot! I hate it too that they just dropped bombshells on us like that! I'm making plans to homeschool my kids because of this reason.
Awesome! I think all mummies who make these decisions are SOLID! 🙂
My son's childcare is raising its fees by $80 starting Nov. It's currently at $500 after subsidy.
Ya the percentage increase is just as much! and I've spoken to the teachers–there's no pay increase! 🙁
I'm more concerned about the food that N3 is eating in the picture – is that school food??
