How much do you pay for pre-school?

We are sending Oliver to pre-school this up coming September and I can not believe the prices.

The cheapest school around here is like 450 dollars a month.  Does that sound right?  I haven't had a kid in pre-school for years so I don't know if that is the normal.  The one we are thinking of sending him to is 650 dollars a month.  It's almost the same amount of money as my older son's private tuition.  I'm in shock!

That sounds about right, unfortunately.

That is for 60 hours a month  then right?  I paid $10 an hour (if you break it down that way) 5 years ago for my youngest to go to an accredited school. I think it was a bit cheaper for my older kids.

You will be paying close to $11 an hour.

We pay nothing. We are very lucky to be in a wonderful school system. I wouldn't pay.

How many hours do you want him in school?

D is 3 and in a private church preschool, she goes Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am to 11:30 am and we pay $190 a month. That is 10 kids and 2 teachers.
