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?

75 a day? That's insane. Typical around here is 150 a week!

a friend of mine who has a registered/state certified in-home daycare is charging $2.25 per hour for a child that age. that is $18 a day or $90 a week. for those hours, she would serve breakfast if you chose, lunch, and 2 snacks - and she is a great cook, good balanced meals, healthy snacks. 2 of my kids used to go to her and they loved it. did she mean $75 for a week?
