  • my dd has been in daycare since sept of 2008 and up until this month it has been completely subsidized. I now make more money and daycare is going to cost me $130 a month. I live in toronto (ontario, canada) and we have subsidized daycare for low income families, if you make less than 20K a year its fully paid for, anything you make on top of that you start paying apercentage based on what you make. I make 35K a year and like i said my cost is $130 a month. just to give you an idea. if you dont get subsidy from the govt then daycare can cost for a child my dds age (3) about $800 a month.

  • The one my DS attends is $115/week for non potty trained 2YO. But I have CCR so I only pay $22 weekly. HUGE life saver!
