How much is day care in your area?

I'm a sahm but alot of my friends have kids in day care and I was just curious of the difference in cost in different areas.
In my area [sw ontario] there is only one day care facility in my town, and the rest are all home day cares. The actual facility charges 200 a week. And the home daycares charge 25-30 dollars per day, so 125-150.

  • My 14 month old is watched by my wonderful neighbor. She charges $30 a day. ($150 a week). Other child care facilities wanted to charge me $1000 a month! I couldn't afford that.
