daycare, any subvention?

I have questions about daycare where 2 children (siblings) are going to the same krippe.

My husband and I are currently working 100%. So, my child (2yo) is going to the daycare everyday. We dont get any subvention because they said our total income is higher than their maximum earning standard. Currently we are expecting the second one in couple of months. I know that siblings would get 10% discounts in most of the daycare. We try to calculate our expenses + 2 children in a daycare without any subvention will lead us to 0 savings.

my questions are:
1. is this maximum earning applied only for 1 child or for 2 children which are going to the same daycare?
2. do you think that having tagesmutter for 2 children is way much cheaper than daycare?

please advice. thank you

Re: daycare, any subvention?

You can also shop around a bit for daycare. We found that anything that advertises itself as "bilingual" was automatically more expensive.

By "Tagesmutter" do you mean private people having a number of kids at their house in a kind of child-minder capacity, or would you mean someone coming to your house as a nanny?

The child-minder option might be cheaper but they aren't as reliable in the event they are sick and have to cancel with no notice.

Having someone come to your house probably would work out more expensive once you factor in their hourly rate and all the hassle of paying their social security, etc.
