  • I live in Colorado and pay $108.00, every two weeks. Both my fiancee and I work full time, but we have different schedules. So he watches our daughter on his days off (Thursday and Friday.) Daycare has her for four hours on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

  • My mil watches our kids, though it's just the youngest now since the older two are in school and I work in a school. We used to pay her $20 a day, but she eventually took less and less and now does it for free. We're very lucky because for a home based daycare we'd be paying $30 a day or $300 every two weeks, which would be a big bite out of my paycheque.
