  • Where do you live? It really varies from city to city. Lexington, KY I payed 240 a week for a newborn.

  • centers cost more than in home

    my kiddos were never in that young but it's VERY costly for babies. At 21 mos my son went to a center and it was 186 a week for 9am to 3pm (nice center, web cams, secure doors, etc)

  • I pay $120 full time, no matter the age, at a daycare facility. I'm in PA.
    It's very local, you will have to call around.

    Home care will run about $130 - $150/wk
    A center will run about $225 - $300/wk

  • I am a licensed daycare provider in KS and charge 90 a week, I do not charge differently for infant but I do of a few in my area that do. My sister also does home daycare in OH and I believe her rate is $120 a week.
