Yikes! DC costs up 20% for 2009

That is crazy. I am currently paying $1770/month for my two girls, in January it's up to $2105. Yikes, that's over half of my check.

  • OUCH.  Is there another center around that's more reasonable?
  • A 20% increase is insane.  Sadly the original price sounded wonderful.  I'll be paying about $1450 for one baby.

    They are middle of the pack for costs- many centres here don't take infants under 19 months old, so it limits which ones we can use. I never expected such a big increase!

  • Seriously?  I've never, ever heard of a daycare that won't accept babies 8 weeks or older!

    I don't think this is that uncommon.  During my research I called several that didn't accept children under 2 or 3.  Not all centers want to deal with infants.
