How much do you pay monthly for childcare for your 2 year old?

I would love to hear from people who have both regular childcare, and pre-school.

Please answer especially if you live in the Houston area...

  • I live in Illinois & I pay $16 per month (with the help of the state)

    My oldest goes to kindergarten all day.. so she only goes there after school and I'm usually already there to pick her up & my youngest goes to pre-school for 2 hours Monday-Friday. She is there for the remaining 7 hours.

  • I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I pay $200/wk for daycare... But I'm sure things are less expensive elsewhere, heh.

  • My 3-year-old is $182 a week at a center (full-time M-F); I think it was $5 to $10 more a week when he was in the younger class. I'm in Fort Worth, and prices here are similar to what I paid when I lived in Houston.

  • I pay $225 a week for a daycare center that has a learning curriculum. It's expensive, but she loves it there and I think the staff is great, so it's worth it.
