How much do you pay for daycare?
 
I'm a daycare provider, in WI, and I'm thinking about raising my rate, which is currently $25/day. I've been doing daycare for 3 1/2 yrs and haven't raised my rates yet, so I feel like I'm due. I'm thinking about going to $30/day. Do you think that's reasonable? I'm a certified home daycare provider with a bachelor's degree in early childhood education! I really appreciate your comments & suggestions and I'm just curious to know how much other people pay for daycare in other areas of the country (as well as WI/MN). TIA! :goodvibes:

Daycare here is 250-400 a week per child depending on where you go. So that is very reasonable to me.

I charge $110 a week in Phoenix. I am MUCH more reasonable than most in my area.

I belong to a daycare providers board, if you are interested in joining or just lurking, let me know and I will give you the link.

when my DC were in DCP

DD was $197/week (infant room)
toddler room was $187
early preschool was $177
pre-k was $167
DS was $167/week (preschool room)

You get the picture, but it was a nicer center that was accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children

Some of the other centers started with infant @ $150/wk and down from there and the not-so-nice places were $85/week & down, but if you didn't speak spanish you & your LO was SOL

I pay right around 1200 a month for 2 kids. One is just a year old and the other 3. $30 a day is about we are paying now per child (what it about equals out to anyhow). :thumbsup:

Our old in-home provider was charging us $200 a week for the THEN 18month old and $100 a week for after-school care for the 6 year old. Oh yeah, we are in RI if that helps!

Thanks for your replies! So, it sounds like it is reasonable to ask $30/day, so I think that's what I'll go to now.
escapethevillage - I would love to check out that daycare providers board. You can PM me with the info you want to, or you can post it here. Either way! :thumbsup:
Thanks again!

I do the same thing and charge $295 per week, for 40 hours. Anything over that is $10 an hour.

Where we are it's $900.00 per month for one non potty trained child.

That's a daycare center place though not a private individual.

Hence the reason why I stay home. :giggle:
