Hi Mummies! Really need advice on this matter as I’m a first-time mother. I’m currently doing freelance work and also finding a full time job. I want to put my now 4 month baby in infant care once I get a job. In the meantime, I can take care of him while job searching. However, the job market is unpredictable and I’m not sure how long it will be till I get a job - could be months. 1) When should I register my baby for infant care? Now (while finding a job) or once I get a job? 2) Is it a guaranteed admission once I register to put my child in X Infant Care Centre? Or will there be a waiting list? If so, how long is the usual wait time? 3) My husband is working full time with an income of $3500 while my freelance income can fetch about $1200-$1800 monthly. Is there a subsidy for mothers who are finding a job? Thank you in advance!
