If I do this, they won't have that.

I really need advice, I wish finances weren't a problem, but with daycare being so high around here, it is a factor. Local daycare centers range from 517.00/ week to 781.00 per week, so it would be a stretch. I hate to post the prices below, but unfortunately it is a factor with DH's hrs cut down.

Our contract with current in home daycare ends 4/1, and prices are going up to $450/week, so I feel now is the time to make the switch.

Would you:

A. Leave them both in this home daycare together (450./wk)

B. Send him to full time pre-school and leave her where she is (460./wk) (opposite directions in the car for pick-up/drop off)

C. Send them both to the center even though I don't know how we'd stretch it (517./wk) and they don't use cloth diapers

D. Send him part time to PreSchool and Keep Her where she is ($491.wk)(opposite directions in the car for pick-up/drop off)

There are no good options here... but thanks in advance for the advice.

....and DH just called. He just got laid off! I guess this is a non-issue & DS will go to part day pre-school with daddy! Not the best senario, but at least they will be home now.
So sorry to hear about your DH getting laid off!!! ughhh.

on the daycare, i honestly lOVE having my boys at the same place, yes they are in different classes but it makes things so much easier in the morning. Getting out with only 2 plus myself is hard enough for me (other people do better lol). I wanted DS2 in a home care to begin with but he has done really well in the center

Thats quite an update. Sorry to hear of the lay off and hoping you and DH get things worked out quickly. On the positive side, the kids will at least have more time with Daddy for awhile.

Re: How impt is it for both kids to attend same daycare? UPDATE in Orig post!

We live in Tucson Arizona, daycare per child at a center that does cloth diapering is $475/per child! A center that doesnt is about $425/per child! I quit working about 5 years ago when my 9 year old started kindergarten and my now 5 1/2 year old was 6 months. The 3 months I had DD in daycare it was close to $1000 a month and they wouldnt use cloth and they didnt hold her for feedings. We did a budget and realized that between daycare and gas it wasnt even cost effective for me to be working. So I quit and now I do online school. Just got my bachelors thru NAU now working on a masters thru ASU. We cut out just a few things and find we actually have more money than we did beofre.

(((HUGS))) Good luck mama.

Wow. That is a seriously high cost of living! Here, even the VERY best center, which is AMAZING and CDs, is $276 for infants and $200 for toddlers.

I'm from the suburbs outside Boston, MA. Not the $$ suburbs, but the burbs of the burbs if you will. It is sooo much more$$ in boston.

Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. That was an update I REALLY wasn't expecting. 3-4 mo ago, we were worried, he survived 6 rounds of layoff's. I thought we were in the clear now with new the company doing better financially, but I think too much damage was done. We'll be ok, this is a blessing in disquise for him to have time with the children. Our DS can now go to a 9-11:30 preschool 3 days per week to give DH a little break. I think financilly we'll be fine this way, Just a test of DH who is a business man going to Mr Mom!
