What's the going rate for a 4yr old 5 days a week from 8-4 these days?

I have a friend saying $75/day.
375/week?!
I found a great daycare for him for $457/month.


She insists she's a lot cheaper.

So tell me, what's the going rate usually?

First of all there is a difference between babysitters and cargivers and centers. It all depends on the average rate in your area and what is
Provided and the quality of care.

In my area the average for that age is $150 a week! And I live near a big city

Um lol I'll be providing all his food as well.
If I send him to school he gets taught things, and gets fed, socializes with other kids. and it's $457/month

She wants $1500 month...

How's
that work? Lol.
Doesn't make sense. And I live in a beach town ob the east coast.

It's expensive here, yes. But how school us cheaper... Lol crazy.
It's usually the other way around

It's called COST OF LIVING-it varies everywhere.

The cost of child care varies greatly depending on where you live. In Manhattan a day care center is $400 PER WEEK and at home childcare is as little as $250. Nannies  are upwards of $500 per week.  OP where do you live?

I agree the cost is quite steep-I'm simply saying that the cost of childcare varies from place to place.
