Hi Moon45,

Family Day Care Educators set their own fees. The admin levy is set by the scheme you work for and every scheme is different so shop around.
In regards to educator fees if you have no idea what to charge I recommend getting onto careforkids.com.au and type in your area, up will come a whole lot of educators, centers, oshc and their fees, this will give you an idea of what is charged in your area. Hope this helps :thumbup:
