You are only required to pay a proportionate share of expenses for daycare required for her employment. If you were previously paying $250 for full-time care and it has been reduced to only before and after school care it is reasonable to expect a substantial reduction in daycare costs.

Extended daycare programs through the school cost an average of $11-14 for either before or after school care per child, so between 22-28$ per day for before and after school care.

Also remember to prorate the expenses to take into account summer, march break and xmas holidays where the kids are with the parents rather than in daycare.

Crunch the numbers and figure out how many days on average the kid should require care, whether EDP or a private daycare would be less. Either way, the cost should drop when no longer in full time care.

With a mock up return with her numbers, you should be able to figure out the actual out of pocket expense for care and determine your proportionate share of that.

Once you do that, yoi can decide if it is worth the time and money to seek a motion to change.
