How much do you pay/charge for childcare?

I'm going to be going back to school and need to figure out how much daycare will cost? How much do you pay/charge? Where do you live?

  • i live in pa and she charges i believe 26 per day for full day. but it goes down i think every year. she is about to be lowered because she just turned two. but there is subsidezed child care that can help if you work and go to school. that helps alot. but i know you have to be in a certain income bracket. when i was pregnant an lived in new jersey it was like $200 a week or more. oh btw she goes to an in home center. good luck. i am in school and work also i understand about budgeting.

  • $20 per day or $90 for the week per child. That include 2 meals a day and pre-k from 8-noon.
    The owners are RN.

  • It is really quite expensive. I pay $250 per week full time for 1 child. I have a well paying job, otherwise I could never afford it.
