If the store is out of childrens medicine, I believe you could ask the pharmacist and they could have some alternative solutions such as using their pill cutter to cut the appropriate dosage for your child's weight or something like that.

I wouldn't give the full adult med to children since their body might not be able to process all of it which could lead to liver damage. But I'm not a pharmacist.

Heads up if anyone is looking to buy Nuna gear (like me). A lot of Nuna products just went on sale for the next couple weeks for black friday. You can find the discounts at all retailers that carry Nuna.

For you, how about 80% cheaper than if you buy it new today? And that's even factoring the current 25% off sale price.

Is that cheap enough? PM if you think so. Note that the extra base is sold though

$10/day? I'm only getting the bigger subsidy so we're down to $1200/mo (from $1640 or so).

FWIW, it's not actually socialism, it's actually good economic policy. Subsidising daycare results in more moms (and dads) choosing to work so it pays for itself in more productivity and more tax revenue.

Having good / cheap childcare support also encourages more couples to have children / have more children. That alone makes it a good policy in any developed country because most (all?) developed countries have birth rates that are lower than the replacement fertility rate, and having a declining population is a receipt for disaster for any country in the world.

Haha I don't fully get what the calculations are, but the base rate without any subsidy/discount is $1350 a month...so we're pretty happy.

Does that mean the centre chose not to participate in the program, and you guys don't get any subsidy? Or do you earn like 200K lol making you ineligible?

My wife works at the center we send the kid to, and from what she told me initially there was backlash from higherups about participating because it's "extra paperwork and we don't want to government poking around."

Then every single parent started to ask when they were going to see the discounts, and they were kind of forced to. I mean I'm all for it, and from the parent's perspective nothing has changed for the level of care the kid is receiving. Wife is also getting something like a $4/hour boost in wages, so we're "double dipping", per se, lol.

I definitely don't make 200k myself but I do know the centre does partake in some kind of subsidy cause when we first enrolled back in April I remember they mentioned everyone pays a snall portion less because of government subsidies. Perhaps this is a scenario where they're raising the rates before Dec kicks in when the lower rates come. Guess I'll find out soon.

One of the conditions the government set to be eligible to partake in subsidies is that the center can't do exactly what you described, jack up the prices so parents don't see any savings.

Maybe they told you the unsubsidized rates or something, it's pretty weird that it'd go up.

Actually it does say on an article I read that "The province will require child care providers who sign up for the fee reduction to agree to a three per cent cap on price increases, to ensure centres don’t raise fees to offset savings for parents."

Either way we'll see!

Our daycare fee is $500 starting Dec 1. It's not $10/day but honestly I'm pretty happy.

We were paying $1150 in the summer, we switched to one that is 950, and that's now becoming 500 with the fee reduction.
