I am just curious how much daycare costs per week approximately.  What is the weekly cost per child in your area?

We pay $190/week for my soon to be 3 year old. That includes meals, music class, Spanish class, gymnastics and Art class. I am sure there is more that is included but that is all I can think of.

 WOW, I live right outside of St.Paul and my SIL pays $250/wk for one kid. She just had another one and I would hate to know what she's getting ready to pay. if I didn't live so far out I'd babysit for half that a wk. That is insane to charge that much.

$100 for a 4yr old full time a week. It's not the nicest around but it's the best for what we could afford. And he loves it. All the ladies there are great.

at the actual daycare it was 135 per child, but now they go to a certified childcare provider, it's in her home, and it's 100 per child but since we have 3 she gives us a discount and it's 80 per child
