  • My littlest man will be starting preschool 2 afternoons a week in Sept. It's $80 a month. It was $75 a month 3 year ago for my second son. My mil watches him so we don't pay for daycare.

  • I paid $585 per month for my daughter when she was in preschool. She went Mon-Fri from 9-3. She had music, art, sign language and Spanish classes. I love the school that she went to.

  • I paid $ 175 a week. My daughter went 1 and 1/2 hours a day only. But it was Catholic and I think it was worth every penny. But it was very hard to swing that. But it was important enough that we choose to give up other things to send her.

    I do a little daycare/babysitting myself currently. I charge only $4- an hour and people call me bitching. Totally rediculous. I tell them to go elsewhere. I never have more than 2 at a time and I actually watch and care for them. Totally rediculous. My friend thinks I should charge no less than $10- bc that's what her 19 yr old daughter gets. I'm 36 and an awesome Mom of 2 awesome kids.

    Go figure!

  • we pay $75 a month for my step son to go MWF 12:30-3:00pm. It would be $80.00 if his mother didn't live within city limits. It is a preschool through our parks dept. All the preschools in this area are in this ball park.
