  • It varies based on where you are and how many days a week. Call some centers in your area to get an idea of the cost.

  • My parents babysit my youngest two and homeschool my oldest when we are at work. We pay them $8 something an hour (can't remember the exact number) which is just enough for them to pay their monthly bills.

  • Hit the button too early.....

    If I would have sent them to daycare it was going to cost me about $3000.00/month for the three of them.

  • I work full-time and send my son to daycare app. 8.5 hrs/day 5 days/week - The monthly cost is $720. It breaks down to around $4-$4.50 an hour.
