  • My daughter starts private preschool in the fall. We will be paying about $121 a month. It will go up to $285 once she's out of the 3 year old program. When I lived in the DC area, most places wanted $500 or more per month for preschool.

  • I've looked into it for my daughter.
    The preschools like Kindercare charge $300 to $500.
    The preschools attached to private K-12 schools charge $400 to $450
    The preschools run by a local college and the local parks department charge $130
    There are no free or "public" preschools where I live (Southern California). The charges are per month.

  • Look into whether your county school system provides Universal Pre-K. It provides free preschool for 4 year olds. Many of the sights are part of the school system, but housed in private or faith-based facilities.

  • it all depends on where you live. In miami I pay $95/week for my 3 yr. old and $70 for my VPK (4-5)
    I also know that their daycare is on the cheaper side, but funnily enough it was better than most if not all the other ones I looked at.
    I'd call you local daycares and visit them. Reg. for Miami is b/c 9--115/wk. and up Montessori is around 900/month.

    in NY I paid 150 for 4/5 days for ONE kid.
