How much does your preschool cost?

I was thinking about putting my 3 year old in preschool at our Church. I am going to homeschool but thought at her age and our home situation (new baby brother) might do her some good to get out around other kids for a while. I only want her going 2 days a week...prob. half days. Our Church charges $50 a week for 2 full days or $40 a week for 2 half days. It seems like alot...what do you pay for preschool?

  • I pay $250/week for full time care.

    Have you looked into other Preschools in your area? You'll get a better idea if those are reasonable rates for the level of quality you expect if you visit other programs in your area.

  • That is actually not bad. Our old preschool charged $75 for a partial week, anywhere from 1-3 days was the same price.

  • The average around here is $80/month for half day, one day/week. I paid $425 for my daughter to go 5 half days when she was four, and that was 4 years ago. I'll be signing my son up next year when he's two to go either 1 or 2 days/week.

  • $11 for half day, $17 for full day, and there's a maximum of two days per week.

  • I pay $102 a MONTH for 3 day a week, 2.5 hours a day pre school. It's a great program. It is only pre school, not daycare. Some of the rates you all pay must be part of daycare centers??

  • I paid $1600 for the entire year. He goes 5 days a week 1/2 days. If he has to go to aftercare (if I have to work past 3) it is 1.50/half hour. I try to limit it, but we have lots of OT this time of year.
