trinton has a little shameless behaviour in the past

what amount of contribution is she asking?

I am dealing with subsidy as well, there is like a very low monthly fee and cost when child is taken out. Child can be taken out 30 days a year and there is unlimited sick days. So you should not have to pay for days child was sick from school. Get attendance record from school. Also , the amount is so small that mom should be able to cover. It's not a $3000 / month daycare issue.

I have been successfully defeating mom's request for contribution to subsidy daycare for over 3 years. Mom didn't consult with you and you did not agree to daycare. Same as me. Also, you don't have a final order that says you have to pay daycare - so you are not doing anything wrong. Lastly, hopefully you are able to look after child when child is in daycare, otherwise, you can't really push back on daycare. - Where is child supposed to be when mom is at work ?

I also assume you have every-other weekend crap job to dad access. Subsidized will limit how much time you can have.

What is your access schedule like ?

Also, you need to see receipts (and then decide if you want it or not), and note that minimum wage is going up to $14 an hour in January. Mom's income must be factored in, and tax benefits she gets must also be factored in.

Don't agree to daycare if you can look after child at those times. Keep pushing back. It would make perfect sense for child to be with parent over stranger / grandparent, etc.
