Childcare fee increases

Sharing a link I found online...

Shows that childcare fees increased abt 200 bucks since 2006 from $680-878 but it seems fees will increase even further this year, judging from what parents are saying... Need more subsidy! Our salaries not increasing fast enough with increasing prices of everything!

Unfortunately, I am afraid that any govt childcare subsidy will only result in higher childcare fees unless the subsidies come with some form of govt regulation to prevent Childcare service providers from taking advantage and raising fees in tandem.
