Child Care Costs

11 posts in this topic

Let me preface this by saying I am not planning on having children for a few years. BUT it never hurts to plan ahead. For those of you who use day care, how much are you paying per hour (or does it go per day, I don't even know)? And please, lets not get into whether or not people should stay home with kids and all that, keep it to day care costs.

Thanks!

We are considering a place that is around $50 per day or $200 per week. Hours are something like 7-7. We havent decided if we are going to do that yet though.

We had both our kids at the Salvation Army daycare up until they went to school, the going rates there now, I think, are $150/wk for infants, $140/wk for older toddlers. We still have them there during their school breaks.

We were paying $3.50/hr, min of 20 hours a week at Alphabet Soup for our Infant (she was 16-20 months while there).... so $70 per week. We checked out all the nicer places but the prices were REDICULOUS

Since this thread is about kids, I have a question:

I know Consumer Report withdrew their recent report on car seats, but does anyone have a suggestion on how to find out what car seats have high ratings for up to 80lbs?

BTW, this info is for my mom, I don't speak this language.
