How much does preschool cost?

We are thinking of enrolling our LO in preschool this fall. What are typical costs for this? We live in MN. We have also looked into "educational daycare". They seem really expensive. tho.

  • I live in Ga and luckily we have a state funded Pre-K program. We looked into private and would have been looking at 600-800 a month! Thank goodness for the Ga lottery.

  • We put our 4 yr old in Preschool this year at the elementary school and it didn't cost us anything (well except some juice and healthy snacks every once in awhile).

  • My child attends a private preschool that is completely EXCELLENT. They have my four year old reading two vowel words, knowing all her states and countries, speaking French, and knowing her numbers well into the 100's. The cost is only 300 a month full time which translates into only about 75 dollars a week. I couldn't have chosen a better school.

    I am from MD

  • My just turned 4 year old goes three mornings a week (9:00-12:30) and it runs us about $550 a month. We're near San Francisco though and it seems the cost of everything is higher than most places.
