The term REASONABLE comes up a lot for s7. One parent cannot put kids in a pile of activities just as the other parent cant say no to everything. Would swimming lessons be reasonable? Yes as it relates to safety. Would private swimming lessons be reasonable? No because basic group classes are available.

For daycare remember you pay your share of the net cost. If you ex gets any subsidies and tax benefit from daycare, that comes off the top before you split it.

May also be a good idea to start putting money away for university/college. That will be a big cost in the future and not many plan for it. You can open your own RESP to use for your share of that expense.

The ex will have to get agreement in writing from you to have it as a s7. They cant simply register and then tell you to pay up.
