SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

How many days per week and hours per day do they go?

Do you mind sharing how much you spend?

How old are they?

Re: SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

My 4yo will start nursery school in the fall. He's going MWF from 9:15-11:45 and we're paying $225/mo. They're following our school district's schedule.

My younger two (2yo and infant) will be home with me but we'll do library, mommy and me, gym programs.

Should also add I'm a WAHM, so I have a sitter in my house the other two days a week.

My 3 year old will go to preschool in the fall. It's 5 half days a week. It's free through my district.

For the first time in over 11 years, I will have 2.5 hours per day all to myself. Chat Icon

Re: SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

My little one (2) goes 2 hours, 2 days a week. It was $1400 I think for the year. I pay it all up front for a 10% discount.

Next year she will go 2.5 hours per day, 5 days a week. I'm not sure if I'm sending her all 5 days, but it works out cheaper to just sign her up for 5. I think it's around $2700 with the discount.

ETA: The year after I'll probably send her to the UPK, which is free.

Haha, I know. DD will be 2 next month and I think she needs a program. She's a late talker, we moved so went don't have a lot of friends, etc.

I got qouted for 1 school, 5 days a week 9-1 for $200/week, or 2 full days (5-10 hours a day) $247/WEEK.

This is the first school, so I am going to look at it on Thurs, but I am not sure. I had wanted a short program, like you 2/3 days a week, 3 hrs a day. She's still little, but it would beneficial, just not sure if it's to much for her.

Ds is 2. He goes 2x a week for 2 hours each time. It costs $150/mth.

I can not tell you how it's changed him from verbal skills to independence to being more aggressive.

It's not really enough time for me to get much done though especially bc I have an infant.

Re: SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

my 2 year old will be going to a 2 year old program at a local preschool in the fall.

im sending her 2 days a week for 2.5 hours. its $200 a month.

im doing it mainly for socialization and to get her used to not being with me all day every day.

i did a tour of the school and sat in on the 2 year old class, i was sooo impressed with what they had them doing. im excited to send my dd!

Re: SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

DS will start a 3's program in Sept (he turns 3 in Oct). He will go 2 x week, 2.5 hrs each time. It's about $1400 for the year. The lower tuition is due to the fact that it's a cooperative nursery school so the parents have to be involved in running the school.

Re: SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

DD is 2 1/2 and she goes 3 days a week from 9:15-11:45. DS is 4 1/2 and he goes 4 days a week from 9:15-11:45. Combined I pay about 3000. I started both kids when they were two years old, for one day a week. I gradually increased the number of days from one to three over the first few 4 months of school.

Re: SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

Sasha is in a 2's program this year-- 3 days a week, 2 hours and 15 mins, and it's about $5000 for the school year (Sept to end of May). I added a 4th day, for $735 in November through end of school year.

For the 3's, it's 5 days a week, 2 hours and 45 mins, and it's $7200 for the school year, which is through end of June next year.

Re: SAHM's who sends their kids to "school"

I'm working on this now.
DH is a SAHD.

I originally planned on sending them 2 mornings a week but may be doing 2 "full days" (9:15 - 3:15).

The prices really vary based on the type of place. We are wait listed at the place I really want. Chat Icon

I don't know if 2 mornings a week will be enough time for them to really socialize.
