  • In Pennsylvania where I live my children go to daycare fulltime. The rates are approx 98/wkly for my 4yr old and around 125/wkly for my 2yr old. We have childcare program for mothers with little to no income that pays most of it and I only end up paying a 25$ co pay at the end of each week. I have a private emergency sitter that charges me $40 for up to 8hrs and that includes both of my children. Good deal huh!
