How much is preschool in your area?

Posted by   + Show Post

When my oldest was in preschool 2 years ago, it was about $90/week. Well now I am enrolling my youngest and it is $190/week. SAME school! Wth man, that's only a few hundred short of our mortgage!!! Tell me this is not the going rate....

I just need something M-F for half days. But they don't offer that. The part-time they offer is M/W/F ($140/wk) or T/TH ($125/wk). I'm looking for other schools now. Ugh, I hate how they are all so reclusive with their prices. I wish they would just post them online....

I paid 102 a MONTH for a 3 day program. It was through the park district.

That is actually cheap. Unless you are low income (as in qualifying for assistance) you will pay almost twice that here.
