Preschools: how much does yours cost?

Out of curiosity (and maybe to help me feel better about how much things cost around us), can you give me ballpark figures of how much your preschooler's tuition is? (Please also give how many days they're in school, and if it's full or half day.) Thanks!

PS. From what I'm gathering, around here I haven't found much that's under $500/month for two days a week, half days. Many are in the $700-$900 range. We live in Los Angeles.

  • $60 a MONTH for 2 days a week 2 hours for those days. It's a small catholic pre school next the catholic school my mom teaches at so we have known the pre school teachers since my mom has been a teacher (10 years) so we trust them. My mom is next door if my DD needs her if I can't get to her in time. It's a great school.
