Some of the things I found out before I booked my daughter in were: - cost for full day - cost for 1/2 day (if offered, some centres dont 'do' half days - cost if public holiday - what does the centre provide and what do you have to provide...some centres supply everything, others you have to supply nappies, snacks etc - visit the centre, and all the rooms, find out what ages the rooms are. eg. 0-2 nursery, 2-3 1/2 toddler, 3 1/2 - 5 kindy. - look at the interaction between the staff and the kids..do the staff seem happy and look like they are enjoying their job..do the children seem happy - look at the facilities, is the centre well looked after, clean, tidy, toys and play equipment safe and up-to-date etc - speak to the Director of the centre, ask about things like if the centre is a sun smart centre, ask to see policies from the centre, there should be a range of them - ask what parent interaction there is..eg. if a community based centre, they will have a management committee...

My DD was either going to my mums place for the 2 days a week during school holidays that i work..or my sister and I time it so that she is home to have my girls or i'm home to have her girls. My DD has just started OSHC for before school so I can get to work earlier and wants to do their vacation care program in school holidays, and I'm happy with that. Its subsidised like Child Care and you also get the Rebate for it as well. Ours is $38 before the subsidy (depending on what % you get).

I thought you couldnt choose what hospital you wanted now if you were public and that they just go by where you live and basically what hospital is the closest? Thats how it was 2 years ago anyway. so they may have changed it since. I had DD2 at Lyell Mac and they were great..I was in the normal labour ward not the BAU as was higher risk due to previous c-section. Bubs was born monday morning and i left Wednesday lunch time. I had a shared room, but was on my own both nights. 2nd day girl came in and left within 2 hrs, and the day i went home they were booking someone else in as I was walking out, so basically had the room to myself apart from 2 hrs during Tuesday. Loved the midwives there and couldnt fault their care at all. Would be happy to go back there again if I was going to have a 3rd (which I"m not lol)

DD almost 2 (in April) is not eating much dinner at the moment, but I dont make her anything else..i dish it up ..she sits at the table, either eats a little bit or none then gets down..and thats it..i ask her if she wants her tea she says no..she doenst get desert (which is usually yoghurt) if she doesnt eat most of her tea....I wil just keep putting it out there for her to eat and i know one day (hopefully sooner rather than later) she will get back into it again. DD1 (now 7) did the same thing and it lasted a good 6 months..she went from eating bugger all tea to everything on her plate..its just a stage (in my opinion). remember they wont go hungry

No offence, but just becuase your daughter can do those things doesnt mean she is gifted. If you think she is, there are tests you can do to have her assesed, for schooling etc. My daughter is not 2 yet, she can count to 10, knows lots of words, can recognise letteres on sight..but i dont think she is gifted..she is just an average toddler who is like a sponge soaking up everything she can

ive actaully done it the best 2.50 ive ever spent alough i have to dig it up again again all 3 kids have gone back alot with their toilet traing with all the stuff thats been happeneg but its worked for me I have an electronic copy of the 3 Day Potty Training Guide if any of you are interested, just send me a pm with ur email address and i'll send it to you I havent used it yet, but am going to give it at try in the next month or two

I have a 7kg Electrolux Front Loader..and I love it though. It has a heap of different washes, I use the 1 hr one and the clothes come out great, they are a lot 'dryer' when they come out compared to a TL. Mine has a child lock on it, and you can also stop it onces its started to put the "last forgotten item" in. It uses heaps less water and power than my TL. I have an almost 2 year old and have never had any problems with her. I keep the door of it open after a wash to dry it out, for about 30 mins or so, then its shut and locked so she can't get in. After the Rebate (which I think has finished now) it only cost me $350 as I bought it on special

A visit from the police this arvo about a break in down the road got me thinking... Do you lock your house when you go out? Do you lock it when you are home? Do your lock your car when its parked at home? Do you lock your car when you go to shops/visiting? I lock the house when we go out but leave it unlocked when Im home. Lock it in the evening when I know we're in for the night. I usually leave my car unlocked at home during the day but lock at night. I always lock it when Im out and about. Just wondering what is the norm? Think I need to be more security conscious. The Screen Door and front door are always locked when I go out, as are the back sliding and laundry doors (security doors on both of them as well). I dont lock my car as its parked in a gargage with an automatic roller door, that you can't get up unless you break into the house and get the 'button'. If I'm home, I have the front door locked, just out of habit. If I just go to my local shop and I'm just 'nicking...
