Re: Summer care for schoolagers?
We paid our DCP $25 a day last summer. It was a steal!!!!!!!
She liked our son, even took him on vacation with her as company for her daughter, but decided it was too much work to try to entertain both big kids and little kids (like big kids couldn't go out when little one's napping, big kids got antsy being confined, etc) so she's not doing school age for the summer anymore.
We are paying about $140 a week for summer day camp instead.....still a good price! Worth it to me -- and camp is open later --- until 6, and she closed at 5:30, so this will be more simulating.
