  1. Hello, We are just starting to look into the costs of childcare as me and my husband are likely to be both working full time if we make the move to Perth. We have 2 children below school age, so would need childcare for them both. I've done a little bit of research and found a cost of $97.50 each for a full days childcare, so $195 in total. Would you say this is about average? I've also seen that the government assistance towards family's childcare is changing this year and is now a child care subsidy, but this is dependent on the parents meeting the residency requirements. Can anybody tell me what these requirements are and whether we would meet them if we were on a permanent visa?
  2. Hello everyone Looking for some kind advice from people that have been in a similar situation to us. We are from Scotland and are soon to be a family of 3 with our little one making an arrival end of October :-) I am 28, i have been a qualified electrician for about 8 years now an have been currently working offshore for the past couple of years. My partner is 26 and a nursery nurse an has been doing this for a few years also. My partner has travelled Australia for a couple of years previous to us getting together and i have looked at Australia for the last 10 years and we have decided between us that we would love to give it a go down under Due to my trade i will be working the first year in oz basically on apprentice wages until i get my A License and my partner will be caring for the baby We will be looking to come over with between £35k - £40ksavings With working currently offshore you miss enough going on at home as it is never mind all the precious moments of the baby growing up so i will not be looking to continue this in Australia as we want to spend as much family time together as possible and have weekends etc together Due to this reason i also don't see the point in me working Monday to Friday and my partner working nights through the week it would completely defeat the purpose of family time, at least for the first year or so anyway Has anyone been in a similar position with being a family of 3 and making ends meet on one wage and savings? Is it really achievable? We would be looking to rent until we found our feet and got stable work etc and would be budgeting around $500 pw rent for somewhere nice with a pool We realise this isn't going to be a walk in the park and will be alot of hard work but we are really looking forward to the challenges ahead and life is far too short for regrets Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post lol Tony
  3. Hi all, I'm looking to emigrate to Perth in the near future .......hopefully. I have an NC, HNC and PDA in Childcare and Education in the UK as well as a BA in Childhood Studies. I have worked in nurseries for the last 17 years in various roles. Through researching jobs in Perth I am aiming for the Early Childhood Teacher position. Does anyone know if they think the qualifications I have will cover this? I know I have to send away for a skills assessment anyway but was just worried I would be wasting my money aiming for this position if my qualification were not good enough. Any Help much appreciated.

  5. Hi guys As my title suggests, I was wondering if full time students can access any child care facilities. Me and my wife are thinking of relocating to Perth, or at least WA, and my wife would probably retrain in a new career. As we have 1, possibley 2 children by the time we get there if there was any childcare available other than daycare then it would really help us out. Has anybody had experience of this? Thanks! Charlie
