Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

We are in Austin TX. My almost 4yo goes to Montessori (open 7:15-5:45) at $670/month and the new baby is starting daycare in May at $815/month until he is old enough to go to the Montessori.

Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

I am not a WOHM yet, but will be soon. The childcare I have looked into is a pre-school run by a community college's child development program. It is about $640 a month for ages 3-4 to go M-F from 7am-3pm. It is about $920 a month for ages 18m-2.9y for the same times.

We live in Central Nebraska (hence the name) and the going rate here is about $2/hour per kid for most in home daycares. The larger ones are more expensive. We have one daughter and pay around $350 per month.

Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

I am in Oregon and DD goes to my sister's house three days a week @ $25/day, so $300/mth. If I had to pay more, I think it wouldn't make sense to even work. After DS comes, I am thinking I might just stay home because I only actually make about $900/mth take home.

Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

Fairly rural area in upstate NY - about an hour south of Syracuse.
2 kids in fulltime care in a certified in home daycare.
8am-4:30pm M-F
$40/day total with the 2 kid discount. Breakdown is $25/day 14month old. $15/day 3YO. 1 kid (no matter the age) in full time care there would be $25/day. ... so we're at $800-900/month depending on how many days in the month.
This was the place we found and love... the first place we checked into when I was pg with dd was $1560/month for ONE kid! Eek! ...it's a center, but still... EEK!

Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

2 kids son is 20 months, daughter is 7, in home day care. Both are dropped off at 6am, they take Jera to school 5 minutes away, and pick her up at 2.30, I pick up the kids at 3pm. We live in the suburbs and both commute to work so she is very flexible with the hours. I pay 140/wk for Jax and 60/week for Jera so 200/week, we pay 2x per month so 800/mo. Excpet during my daughters breaks from school, then it cost 100/week for her. In July when Jax turns 2 cost will go down to 125/wk.

Wow, I thought paying 800/mo was insane, there is no way I would be able to afford what some of you ladies pay.

Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

My son is now home with DH full-time (today is day 1!) but before that my son, 15 months old, was in a licensed in-home daycare. The provider was a elementry school teacher before starting her own in-home daycare 3 years ago. I paid $180/wk for care from 7:30am to 5:30pm. I could drop him off late or pick him up early, but it was still $180/wk, therefore $720/month. This is the exact same rate I paid when my son started there when he was 12 weeks old. I live outside of Kansas City, but still in a city atmophere.

Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

ds1 in preK now, so only before and after school fees to pay + my 19 month old in care full time (. I pay 332 per month for the 19 mo old/83 per week. Fees for my 5 year old are waived - I'm on program thru county for reduced rate for childcare.

I'm in Houston. I pay $302 every other week + $12/month for gymnastics for my 2yo. There are $40 supply fees due twice a year, IIRC. Tuition itself includes breakfast, hot lunch & snack every day.

Re: How much do you pay a MONTH for child care?

I am in a semi-rural town in southeast CT and I pay $1160/month for my 15 month old and my almost 3 yr old for part time care from 10:30AM to 3:30PM Mon-Fri.

DS1 will be attending pre-school in the fall but I don't know how much that is yet.
