Southwest Missouri. It helps that there's not any big towns around...I know if you go up to Springfield (1.5 hours away) that their prices are more like $20 a day and that's the cheaper ones. Right now I have a nephew that goes to a program at the Y that is $12 a day... and they go to the pool 3 times a week and do other activites on the other two. It's an awesome baragin.

Re: Babysitters!

My dd goes to an in home sitter/daycare about 10 hours a week for $2 an hour. For about $7 a day she gets a snack, lunch, excellent child care, education, and tons of fun. I couldn't imagine paying $10 an hour for a teen to sit on my couch while my kids are sleeping. Crazy
