My husband and I are planning to start a family soon, but we want to get a better idea about the cost of childcare in the Alexandria/Arlington area. We are new to this area, so any information or links to sites would be really helpful.
Don't know if they really vary a lot within NoVA.
In Fairfax, I'm paying $230 per week for my 4 years old and she goes to a licensed commercial daycare.
Infant care is definitely higher $$$ plus you have to send diapers, wipes and provide food as well.
We are currently on 2 waiting lists in the Tysons Corner area, and the price for infant/newborn daycare is $1800 & $1650, respectively...
And that is just for care - - all diapers, bottles, etc. are provided by the parent.
