$375 for MWF 9-2.  It's a very reasonable price 'round these parts :)

I have 2 children in daycare ages 4 and 2 for them combined it's about $800.00 but we get a little assistance so we pay $631.00 a month. The daycare does provide breakfast, lunch and snacks so we don't have that cost. I know some day cares do not provide this. We also have to bring our own diapers and purchase 2 packs of baby wipes and 2 boxes of tissues each month.

 infants cost more as they require more one on one care ( in ohio state ratio is 1 adult for 6 infants) as the child is older costs get lower as less staff required.   Call around and find out.. also many places have waiting lists . .good luck!

it really depends on your location, in my area it's not more than 100 a week. but where my cousin lives everything costs more, she pays almost 300 a week per child!

I'm a WAHM who runs a day care out of my home. I charge $125 per wk for children under 2.9 yrs. (not potty trained) and $100 per wk over 2.9 (potty trained). I live in NY so I'm not sure if that will help u.
