What's the price of daycare where you live?

Just trying to feel like I'm not in this alone...daycare is SO expensive! Infant care is around 880 a month!

  • We were paying $656 a month for our non-potty trained 2 year old. When he goes back to school in the fall he will be a ton cheaper (It goes down to $478 a month)because he is potty trained now. I didn't have to do the infant care, but I know it is a ton, because the adult to child ratio has to be high (which you want so that they can best care for your baby).

  • I don't know about day care. But I send my son to preschool. It costs $50 a week for 3 days from 9 - 12 and includes lunch.

  • $500 a week for 3 in a center during the summer. Expensive, yeah, but it's a good place.
