Buried under daycare costs

My husband and I both work and we have 3 children . My husband is in the Army and I work on post and our children go to kindergarten and preschool/daycare. We make too much money for assistance (even for Army assistance), however we pay enough in daycare costs that it is the same amount as our rent payment. We are trying to get financially stable by paying off all our debt that we incurred before my husband enlisted, but it is hard. The especially tough times are when I have to take leave without pay for them being sick but I still have to pay the daycare the same amount even though they were not at the preschool/daycare
