How much do you pay for childcare?

how much per hour?
per week?
per month?

is it cheaper if you pay ahead of time in full?
or do prices vary depending on the age of the child?
if so how old is your child and how much is it?
thank you!

  • I pay $85 a week for my 2 year old. Its an in-home day care. She wants to be paid a week in advance, every Friday. Just had a baby last week & not sure how much she is going to charge me for the new baby yet, but I know it will be cheaper than a normal daycare.

  • Depends on the area:

    Daughter - $540/month
    Son- $200/month right now, that will be going up as he is switched to full time.

  • My daughter goes to daycare 3 days a week. It's $40 a day whether I drop her off for one hour or eleven. So it costs me $120 a week. I usually write her a check the first day I drop her off or the week.
