Do you think $203.00 a week for preschool is reasonable?

Breakfast, lunch and snack included. They can stay 7am to 6pm. All of the teachers have an associates degree and some have their bachelors.

  • I don't know if it's reasonable, but that's how much my SIL paid for her son to be in daycare/preschool...

  • Since breakfast, lunch and snack is provided and they can stay from 7am to 6pm, I think that is pretty reasonable. Sounds more like a daycare than a preschool though. I think we paid $130 a month for my son's preschool. He went MWF from 9am to 11:14am.

  • Do you need that long of a day? Is a portion of it preschool and another daycare?

  • That seems a little high, but still reasonable, for the area I'm in, but we have a lower cost of living than a lot of areas. I'm in Fort Worth, TX.

  • Yes they do have infant care but at 3 years old it is preschool with teachers.

  • I just realized that you typed $203 a week. I was thinking a month. That seems like a lot of money just for one week. Can you afford $812 a month for a preschool?

  • Can I afford it? Yes. I live in Philadelphia. That's cheap compared to some schools. Lol
