How much does day care cost you?

As some of you know I am toying around with starting an in home daycare eventually ... I will be doing it legally through NYS.

If you don't mind me asking what is the going rate for childcare?

If possible, please tell me if the daycare is at someones home or at a separate establishment - also, please include how old your child is.

Thank you so much!!!Chat Icon

I pay about 40 dollars a day but she is unlicensed. I would pay more for her because she is absolutely wonderful!

DS goes to an in home, licensed provider through NYS. He is there 1 day part time (4 hours or less) and 4 days full time (8am-4pm) and we pay $756 per month.

Working on a 9 hour schedule she charges $42 per day for 0-18 mo, $40 per day 18mo-2yrs, and $40 per day 3yrs-5yrs. For part day it is $21 per day for 0-18 mo, and $20 per day for any children over 18mo. Rates are different for "extended day" which is considered anything over 11 hours per day.

I know..I love our daycare provider! She has a classroom in her home (garage converted into an actual classroom) and she has different activities each day (reading, singing, circle time, etc). Every day we get a form that says "A day in the life of Daniel" on it and it explains everything DS did everyday (bottles, pee/poop diapers, activities, his mood, and any additional comments). I can't say enough about how well DS is cared for and all of the activities he is exposed to everyday. We couldn't be happier.Chat Icon

Re: How much does day care cost you?

For up to 18 months, our daycare center (not in home care) is $320 a week for M-F, 8am - 6 pm. They don't offer part time hours for this age group.

ETA: this includes breakfast, lunch and 2 snacks once they are able to eat table food. Before that, you provide your own bottles and baby food. We also provide diapers, wipes and diaper cream.

Re: How much does day care cost you?

I'm in the Philly 'burbs - when Alex was an infant, her school charged about $1250 per month for M-F, 7:30am to 6pm, closing at 3pm on Fridays. No food included, but oodles of classes like Yoga, Gymnastics, Music, Sign Language, and during the summer, swim lessons.

Now that she's 3.5, the tuition cost has gone down to about $950 per month.

Re: How much does day care cost you?

I have a baby sitter (unlicensed) but she's awesome. DD is the only one she watches and we pay her $50 a day. We drop DD off between 8:45-9 and she gets picked up at 6 pm.

I feel really blessed to find someone so awesome and so reasonable.

I live in NYC and the licensed day care centers we were looking at were $450 a week and upChat Icon
