Re: 2 or more in ft daycare? how much a month?

Wow, some of ya'll are lucky. I pay $200/wk for my 4yr old and 4mo old to go to a home daycare. When it was just my daughter it was $125/wk. If I had them in a center around here it would be twice that cost!

Re: 2 or more in ft daycare? how much a month?

If both of my 2 went FT it'd be $60/day. That's $300/wk or $1200/mo. Eek! Thankfully DS only goes 3 days/wk and DD only goes brfore & after school 3 days/wk. I end up paying $120/wk. Dreading adding a 3rd to the DC cost in the spring!

that is crazy cheap! We were paying $250/week for both kids ($1000 a month) and that was one of the lowest rates we found.

I have to second what I have heard from others, that you really have a pretty great rate. We pay over $800/mo for two to go twice a week. It really is crazy how expensive it is!!

Re: 2 or more in ft daycare? how much a month?

I am still trying to wrap my head around what we will have to pay for two in daycare come March. Right now, we pay $255/week for my daughter and expecting to pay about the same for #2 in March...which comes to $510/week!! over $2K a month......seriously considering a nanny, but there are tradeoff with either route!

We were around $1200/month with both. Until August, when DS started public Kindergarten!

This. I remind myself how very lucky I am to have such a great daycare available to me.

Re: 2 or more in ft daycare? how much a month?

I pay $155/week for my toddler's 3 full days at a center. Then another $884 a month for my two older children in private school. Yes, it hurts but it's worth it because we need my income.

I have 2 in FT and I pay $300 a week. My LO is going to turn 2 next month though so she said she will be lowering his rate. Then when my oldest goes to Kindergarden next year she said it will be lowered again.

Re: 2 or more in ft daycare? how much a month?

We would be paying about $1700 per month to put both kids in daycare full-time. That would eat up an entire paycheck, which is part of the reason that we decided that I would cut my work hours and stay home most of the time.

I'm still working 1 day per week but when the new baby comes my mom or MIL will watch him/her while I work. DD will still go to daycare, and it's $47 per day for just her. I really like our daycare, though, so I pay it. We also have to pay $3 per day for hot lunch (not included).

I am looking forward to when dd starts kindergarden Private school will only cost $400 per month per child, including after school care. Daycare is expensive!

Re: 2 or more in ft daycare? how much a month?

Sound cheap to me too... my son is in a center from 7:30 till 3pm and I pay 900 just for him alone... When we get our second child then it will cost just over 2000 dollars a month for daycare until my son goes to Kindergarten in a year. Its just incredible that daycare cost that much for 2 kids.
