  • I have three boys so daycare can get quite expensive. It all depends on who watches them. If its just another stay at home mom than you should not be paying more than $100 a/wk if even that. If its a licensed daycare that's not at a house than your probably looking between $130 - $175 no matter what. I currently pay $70 for my 4yr old, $80 for my 3yr old, and $90 for my 1 yr old/ week and she provides food and arts and crafts and all that and she is an at home licensed daycare.
