For people that are returning back to work and need full time childcare after their leave, I wanted to see what the average was for the area you live in to see if daycare is high across the board.
Price per month/week/day?
Where do you live?
I'll go first....we have checked in to both institution type of daycare and in home daycares. The institution type is running $325 a week which is $1,300 a month. I have called about 10 of them and they are all running within a few dollars of that price!
Private in home daycare I have come across $42 a day or $840 a month and also $175 a week which is $700 a month. At this point, we are leaning towards private in home daycare.
We live in Aurora, Colorado and I work in Highlands Ranch, CO which I can do daycare in either location (25 miles apart from each other) but both are around the same for market price.
I do not know how people with more than 1 child in daycare can afford to still work!!!
