  • $135 a week.. pretty much every daycare facility charges that for infants with the hours of 7am until 6pm.

  • It depends on where you are located. I live in South MS and I charge $95 a week for infants. I'm also much cheaper then other daycares in my area though.

  • I suggest calling around to quite a few different daycares and comparing prices. Make sure to visit all of them to so that you pick one that you feel your child would be safe in and ask for references.

    I just realized that by "in home" you could be refering to a "nanny". I would look on care.com for nannys and sitters in your area.

    Good luck!
