Considering the cost of day care, I'd pretty much be working for peanuts. (I know I shouldn't view it that way, but still...) And from what I understand, child care isn't considered a deductible, is this correct?
I don't know how it is in your kanton, but here up to 10,000 of child care costs are deductible.
You can deduct them even if you are subject to tax at source; there are forms you can request from the tax authorities.

ETA: You would also be contributing to a pension, so there would be some delayed benefits, as well.
