  • I worked in daycare back in 1993-1995 (yes I am certified), and we charged $210 a week per child then for full time. I couldn't imagine what it would be now.

  • When I was working I was paying any where from $65-$150 per child. It all depends on age & what Day Care I went through.

  • It depends on the area you live in. I live in SE WIsconsin and for an infant (up to 2 yrs old), a week of care is anywhere from $190-225 a week and may or may not include food.
