There is no statute or case law that dictates the age at which a child is no longer eligible for daycare for purposes child support. The standard for determining whether the non-custodial parent must pay his or her share of the daycare expense is whether the daycare is reasonable. This reasonableness standard applies both in terms of the necessity of the daycare (whether your child needs it based on the child's age and needs) and the cost of the day care.
In your case, if you feel that your child does not require daycare, you could simply refuse to make payment to the custodial parent. Of course, this could certainly lead to the custodial parent petitioning the court for enforcement / violation of the support order. The court would then determine whether the childcare was reasonable for your child based on the child's age and needs.
